On the 6th of June, Kristin Guldbrandsen Frøysa, director of NORCOWE and associate professor II at UiB, gave a summary of the recent European University Association (EUA) conference in Leuven, Belgium.

The conference addressed the contribution of higher education in developing better energy systems based on renewable energy sources, and how we can transition towards a carbon-neutral society. Recent hot topics includes smart grids, smart cities, electrical vehicles, living labs and demonstrations, the energy union and so on. Kristin also pointed out some challenges being faced, such as the difficulty of achieving true cooperation between natural and social sciences.
