TUM Summer School on Energy, Water and Food Technologies in Africa
The first TUM Summer School on Energy, Water and Food Technologies in Africa, named “Development by Innovation” will be hosted from October 2 to October 13 2017 at TUM Campus Garching.
The Summer School aims to create innovative concepts for sustainable Energy, Water- and Food supply in interdisciplinary and international teams with students from African partner universities.
During the first week, TUM scientists will provide theoretical knowledge and teach active approaches regarding decentralized food, water and energy technologies and their utilization in Africa. The second week then allows for interdisciplinary student teams to put their knowledge into practice and develop a concept of application for a certain region in Africa. The concepts will be published and, potentially, presented at international symposia and conferences.
Graduate students and doctoral candidates from all recognized African universities and TUM students from the fields of energy or water engineering, economics, life science or social science with a strong focus on the energy-water-food-nexus who are fluent in English are able to apply.
The application deadline is 30 June 2017.
