Academic Board

Short description

Hanzehogeschool Groningen started a brand new master programme ‘Energy for Society’. Dr. Ruth Mourik has joined the Academic advisory Board.

“The aim of the master programme is to educate Energy Transition Strategists focussing on local and regional levels of energy transition. Upon graduation students will have a broad competence base ranging from how to build (energy) communities, sustainable energy technologies, sustainable business models, governance, communication to spatial transformations. This will enable students to initiate and support local and regional energy transition projects entrepreneurially, i.e. help define and implement community-based projects that create social, environmental and monetary value. Students will be able to catalyse complex bottom-up energy transition processes and foster change in people’s ‘energy behaviour’. Working with communities, cooperatives, clusters of companies, municipalities and regional organisations they will create synergy between different groups of stakeholders.”
