Positive Energy Districts European Network Training School Call for Applicants


Positive Energy Districts European Network Training School Call for Applicants

17 September 2023
COST Action CA19126 PED-EU-NET Positive Energy Districts European Network
Training School Call for Applicants
“Implementing Positive Energy Districts (PED). Learning from Zürich”

The training school will acquaint participants with state-of-the-art processes and practices for implementation of Positive Energy Districts. Participants will learn through lectures, site visits, practical classes, group work and discussion workshops how Zürich has been successfully implementing PEDs in the last fifteen years. Participants will become familiar with established and emerging models for PED governance and will get hands-on experience in working on real case studies with a variety of selected PED stakeholders. Furthermore, participants will learn how Zürich is planning further developments of PED, and will reflect upon PED related issues in research, policy, and practice. A detailed programme with a schedule and description of all envisaged activities, trainers, and site-visits will soon be available.

Organised by PED-EU-NET 

This COST Action brings together the multidisciplinary work of researchers of engineering, architecture, and related practices in the field of PED knowledge production and use. The aim of the network is to mobilise researchers and other relevant stakeholders across different domains and sectors to drive the deployment of Positive Energy Districts (PEDs) in Europe through open sharing of knowledge, exchange of ideas, pooling of resources, experimentation of new methods and co-creation of novel solutions. The proposed training school represents an excellent opportunity to connect and become part of PED-EU-NET COST Action, make relevant connections and new contacts, and engage in future activities.

Who should apply:

Researchers, practitioners, and public officers, at different ranks are eligible to apply to the training school, including graduate and PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, and professionals. Researchers from any branch of engineering, as well as architecture, and other related disciplines are welcome to apply, provided that they have an interest in implementation and governance practices and knowledge work in the PED environment.

Closing date for applications: 30th May 2023
