On Wednesday 12 June, the EnTranCe energy testing ground at Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen will be home for the fifth year running to the TransFuture Festival, which is all about new forms of energy. The diverse programme includes lectures and workshops as well as an innovation market where businesses, government bodies and knowledge institutes demonstrate their activities to address the issue of new energy. The festival will also see the Top Dutch Solar Racing Team solar car on their way to Australia.
EnTranCe regularly welcomes international experts in the field of energy, sustainability and the transition towards a sustainable future. Last month, the Indian professor Anupam Saraph, visited EnTranCe and introduced students and researchers into the concepts of Future Design and System Dynamics Modeling. We asked him a couple of questions about these concepts and their relation to the energy transition.
Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen has received a total of €3.7 million in grants from INTERREG Europe, an initiative that supports interregional collaboration throughout Europe. The grants will fund two large multi-year projects led by Klaas Jan Noorman, professor of Energy Transition, and Willem Foorthuis, professor of Sustainable Cooperative Entrepreneurship.
Op donderdag 7 maart 2019, een dag voor de Internationale Vrouwendag, viert VIEN de oprichting met een energiesymposium. Dit zal plaatsvinden op een duurzame en inspirerende plek: de EnergyBarn op de Zernike Campus in Groningen.
During the Barn Talk with Harm Edens, pupils from various primary schools from the three northern provinces handed over a Future Chair to Harm Edens and EnTranCe. The Future Chair symbolizes future generations who need a vote at the decision-making table of large companies.
