Working tog­e­ther for a safer green ener­gy tran­si­ti­on.

A new post­gra­dua­te safe­ty cour­se invi­tes stu­dents — wha­te­ver their aca­de­mic back­ground — to learn how to miti­ga­te green energy’s com­plex risks.

The shift to envi­ron­men­tal­ly fri­end­ly ener­gies also opens up new ques­ti­ons about how to make this new indus­tri­al envi­ron­ment safe. New rese­arch-rele­vant chal­lenges ari­se from tho­se tech­no­lo­gies that invol­ve hydro­gen and other flamma­ble gases and reac­ti­ve mate­ri­al such as bat­te­ries, etc. In order to pro­per­ly under­stand the­se new risks and take into account envi­ron­men­tal, eco­no­mic and social inte­rests, dif­fe­rent disci­pli­nes need to be brought tog­e­ther. In rese­arch and in the Master’s pro­gram­me “Safe­ty and Dis­as­ter Manage­ment”, we make con­tri­bu­ti­ons to prepa­re in the best pos­si­ble way for the new risks of cli­ma­te chan­ge and the ener­gy tran­si­ti­on.
