China CO2 neutral by 2040
March 1 – March 15, 2015
Shanghai & Hangzhou
Introduction: The SEEEP High Level Spring (or Summer/Winter) School
The CLUSTER Doctoral Schools are organized within the Sino-EU Engineering Education Platform and SESE Doctoral Schools for Sustainability Engineering.
The High Level Summer School on Energy bring professors & PhD candidates from the highest level together to come up with solutions to the grant societal challenges, such as sustainable energy, energy transitions, health or active aging.
The High Level Summer Schools are big schools, lasting for two weeks, and consisting of multiple universities from China and Europe. Aim is to have 15-18 professors from European & Chinese partners, teaching up to 70 PhD’s from both sides. Active participation from Industry and Municipalities is required for assignments which will be solved by PhD’s in multidisciplinary and multinational teams.
The High Level Seasonal Schools take place every year, 2015 in China, 2016 in Europe, 2017 in China, etc.
The 2015 Sino-Eu Spring School on Energy Transition
The Topic of the school is ‘Energy Transition’. The school will combine technologies and systems studies to design energy transition pathways of ‘China CO2 neutral 2040’. A follow up is planned for 2016, ‘Europe CO2 neutral by 2040’.
The format of the school combines morning lectures by well-known scientist from our community. During the first week the PhD candidates work in groups on concepts/challenges to a specified assignment. At the end of the week the concept will be presented to design critics. The concepts will be studied on feasibility the 2nd week, leading to the final presentation.
System studies for the entire energy system will be carried out, based on back casting and different scenarios.
The PhD school aims at developing multi-disciplinary skills of PhD students related to system engineering, design thinking, team working, presentation skills, and peer learning. One expects to form 8-10 student teams that will work on a challenge and present results at the end of the workshop. The student teams are expected to work as team with minimal guidance. The first day lectures will introduce design thinking and basics of project management.
The workshop is organized by:
The Spring PhD school is planned to run for two weeks, one week in Shanghai and one in Hangzhou, with four organizing Universities: Tue, KTH, SJTU and ZJU.
In 2016 the school would be given in Europe at Eindhoven and Stockholm respectively.
The school gathers over 60 participants from EU and China, more than 20 professors from Europe and China.
The program is divided into five distinctive parts:
Ten student groups (approx.) are formed prior to the start based on previous competence and experience. Each group consists of a mix of students from the four universities. Each group is awarded two supervisors after the initial problem formulation presentation held on the afternoon day 3. The idea here is to maximize the utilization of the supervisor special competences. Each group receives one supervisor from KTH or TU/ee and one Chinese counterpart.
The student groups can choose from given proposed challenges or elaborate their own.
Each day from day 3-5 start with a 45 minute keynote giving further input to the groups. The groups are responsible for setting up short meetings with the two supervisors assigned.
The second week in Zjeijang provides the students with further inspiration and it is important that lectures given the second week are encouraging and inspirational and focused on recent case studies or experience from ongoing projects in China or Europe since the students groups are working on a specific challenges already defined during the first week. Also general methodological issues and challenges related to systems analysis and modelling is well suited here.
Basically: lectures in the beginning (first week) should address challenges and proposed solutions (new idéas) and further lectures (Second week) should provide suggestions for solutions and examples such as case studies.
The School will render 4ECTS credits to participating PhD students.
Intended learning outcomes:
The PhD-candidates will be assessed on skills to independently penetrate a complex challenge in a team and provide a solution. Additional assessed skills:
