Content

Within the cluster for Science and Technology a U4 Summer School cycle will be launched on Energy, Sustainability and Society. A first edition will take place at Ghent University around the central theme of 'Sustainable use and re-use of biomass'.

Each day of the programme focuses on a specific theme with contributions of leading scientists in the field of all U4 partner universities and of the Ghent University based International Thematic Network 'GREEN-CHEM'. Day one will focus on biomass production. On the second day technological processes are considered to transform biomass into useful end  products (by thermal, thermochemical, chemical, microbiological, ... processes). On the third day legal, economical and political aspects of (re)use of biomass are dealt with. Also a company visit is scheduled.
