Coordinated by ETH Zurich, according to the proposal SENTINEL promises to develop a fundamentally new energy modeling system that integrates the criteria of the transition to a renewables-based energy system from the ground up. 

New project on political feasibility of decarbonisation

December 20, 2018

ENGAGE (Exploring National and Global Actions to reduce Greenhouse gas Emissions) project has just been awarded a major H2020 grant from the European Commission.

The project aims to develop a new generation of global climate-energy scenarios which avoid temperature overshoots and negative emissions and are selected for socio-political feasibility.

CEU's Department of Environmental Sciences and Policy is leading research on defining and evaluating political feasibility of climate-energy scenarios at the national and international level.

Experiential Learning through Internships

A project on Experiential Learning was successfully completed at Syslab within the Environmental Practicum course. The project, called “Experiential Learning through Internships and (guided) Reflection”, was supported by the CEU Teaching Development Grant. Its goal was to introduce a more structured reflection scheme and refinement of the Practicum course as a whole.

CEU and ISEPEI Project Showcased at Eye on Earth Summit in Abu Dhabi
