TUM Summer School on Energy, Water and Food Technologies in Africa

The Summer School aims to create innovative concepts for sustainable Energy, Water- and Food supply in interdisciplinary and international teams with students from African partner universities.

During the first week, Technical University Munich (TUM) scientists will provide theoretical knowledge and teach active approaches regarding decentralized food, water and energy technologies and their utilization in Africa. The second week then allows for interdisciplinary student teams to put their knowledge into practice and develop a concept of application for a certain region in Africa. The concepts will be published and, potentially, presented at international symposia and conferences.

Graduate students and doctoral candidates from all recognized African universities and TUM students from the fields of energy or water engineering, economics, life science or social science with a strong focus on the energy-water-food-nexus who are fluent in English are able to apply.

Application

The application deadline is 30 June 2017.

If you are interested in participating, please find more information on the homepage of the program.

IAMG2019 // 20th Annual Conference of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences

The conference will cover the usual topics in geo-mathematics, geostatistics, and geomodeling but in particular will bring to fore geomodeling issues at the intersection of food, water, and energy. The challenge of meeting the increased demand for food, water, and energy and the resultant stress on our geo-sphere is broadly accepted as one of the major scientific challenges facing mankind. The feedback processes intrinsic to this tri-partite cycle are best-studied using sophisticated...
