Streams & Interdisciplinary Project

The summer school offeres four different streams and interdisciplinary Projekt.

 

Stream 1 - Climate Change – Climate Impacts – Clean Energy

Stream 2 - Clean Air in Cities

Stream 3 - Bioenergy and Clean Combustion

Stream 4 - Sustainable Use of Water Resources

Interdisciplinary Project
Research Towards Sustainable Solutions

 

 

Stream 1 - Climate Change – Climate Impacts – Clean Energy

Climate change is probably the most pressing environmental challenge of our times and effects not only the weather but also the economy and the society. The Climate change stream focuses on the latest scientific knowledge concerning the climate trends, the impacts on weather and microclimate, the tools developed to monitor the changes and the strategies for adaptation and mitigation.

Stream 2 - Clean Air in Cities

Despite a number of regulatory initiatives and technological developments, the atmospheric concentrations of air pollutants in urban areas across the EU remain above acceptable levels. The Clean Air in Cities stream looks into the main sources of pollution in cities from an emission and atmospheric concentrations perspective. It presents simulation tools to assess current pollution levels, experimental techniques to measure pollution, and discusses the effectiveness of potential measures in cleaning the air we breathe.

Stream 3 - Bioenergy and Clean Combustion

Of the many factors threatening a more sustainable society for future generations, those of increasing waste and decreasing primary resources, are among the most important. Biomass (non-food and waste type) with its inherent renewable nature can help solve both resource and waste problems especially in the context of circular economy. The Bioenergy and Clean Combustion stream deals with the principles of circular economy and its application in bioenergy systems, the potential of using waste biomass for producing biofuels, chemicals and materials and the perspectives of moving to low carbon economy. Clean combustion principles and systems are also discussed and progress in modelling tools and experimentation are critically reviewed.

Interdisciplinary Project Research Towards Sustainable Solutions

Sustainability: much ado about nothing? What does sustainability mean? How do our projects relate to that concept? How can our work contribute to a sustainable development? We will discuss these questions and gather new ideas and develop concepts for future projects on sustainable solutions.
