Multi-sectoral approaches to Innovative Skills Training for Renewable energy And sociaL acceptance
The project MISTRAL, funded by European Union within the Horizon2020 program, involves 15 linked PhD studentships based at 7 European universities with a variety of industrial placements, summer schools and shared training. The project aims to nurture a new generation of researchers who can effectively evaluate the complexity of social acceptance issues facing the deployment of renewable energy infrastructure and propose innovative solutions in a variety of research, government and business contexts. MISTRAL will do this by fostering a vibrant inter-disciplinary environment to change the way we understand and respond to declining social acceptance of renewable energy infrastructure and engage a wider range of inter-sectoral stakeholders to develop innovative solutions. It will also provide an innovative training environment where young researchers can develop advanced skills in research and transferable skills, benefit from a range of diverse secondment experiences and debate current issues with some of the world leading researchers in the field, in order to develop advanced capacities for progressing Europe’s energy transition.
