There are a couple of good briefs this week.
• WSED Young Researchers Conference
The annual World Sustainable Energy Days in Wels, Austria has grown from strength to strength over recent years. The World Sustainable Energy Days are organised by the OÖ Energiesparverband, the energy agency of Upper Austria with the mission of promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy sources. WSED includes thematic conferences, a trade show and technical visits.
One of the highlights is the Young Researchers Conference. It will once again be in integrated part of the programme with 2 conference tracks: one on biomass and one on energy efficiency in buildings
As before, this event is dedicated to presenting the work and achievements of young researchers in the fields of biomass and energy efficiency and offers an opportunity to interact with researchers and industry experts from all over the world. The organisers will cover the costs for accommodation, meals, participation and local transport for up to 60 selected participants.
For the third year in a row, the best conference contributions will be honoured with the awards “Best Young Researcher: Energy Efficiency” and “Best Young Researcher: Biomass”. The researchers will receive 1,000 Euro each as prize money.
Young researchers have to have been born after 1980.
