In a few weeks Kirsty Holstead (researcher on the TESS project from the James Hutton Institute) will be attending the CLIMATE KIC-PHD SUMMER SCHOOL 2014 in Frankfurt.

The theme of the Summer School is “Energy Transition in Frankfurt: Overcoming Barriers to Change”, and it starts on 31 August.

The Purpose of the Climate-KIC PhD Summer School in general is:

  •   to equip participants with the knowledge of transformative, socio-technical innovation using a systems approach
  •   to enable PhD students to link their individual research projects to low carbon innovation activities
  •   to provide practice oriented tools that students could use to enrich their individual projects
  •   to exchange ideas between students and experts and to develop new project ideas for low carbon innovation

The Summer School will include theoretical elements, practice-oriented parts and project work.

Kirsty will be blogging about her experiences on this website. If you have any questions for Kirsty before she goes then ask them here.
