Education and Capacity Building for Renewable Energies: Concepts and Targets
Scientists in the African, Arabic and European region have already noticed that renewable energies are a key factor for sustainable development. These resources are a chance for the global community to meet energy and water demands, to combat climate change and to create socio-economic potentials for regional development. This is a prerequisite for stabilizing the region and therefore will ultimately improve the level of international security of a world with a population of 9 to 10 billion by the year 2050.
The SEPA-DESERTEC International Conference sets an initial point for more closely integrated research, science and education and to promote leadership within the field of renewable energies. It underlines the meaning of capacity building for a global application of renewable energies.
Talks given by participants from the transformation countries Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia, from Senegal (representing Sub-Sahara Africa) and the European Union (esp. Germany) will provide an overview on the subject. Deeper insights in specific sub-topics will be given by discussion rounds and a poster session by representatives with academic and professional backgrounds.
The SEPA and DESERTEC network kindly invites participants from all over the world to join us and take a global outlook on the important issue of renewable energies.
