  • Summer School Call for Applications

1 April 2022

To fight climate change, many countries have pledged to realise net-zero or carbon neutrality. Decarbonisation of transport is at the centre of such efforts. There are flourishing research activities in the areas of smart and connected mobility, and electrification of transport.

The Smart Energy and Decarbonisation Summer School will focus on how transport decarbonisation fits into the wider context of evolving energy systems in the UK and worldwide, including power grid decarbonisation, smart and connected mobility, electric vehicle charging, and smart grid technologies.

The call for applications for the Summer School is now open: An Invitation to Apply

How to apply
