The SHAPE ENERGY funded internships for PhD researchers to explore interdisciplinary working and the role of Social Science and Humanities (SSH) within H2020 energy/transport projects took off in October 2017. Since then over 20 energy-SSH early-stage researchers worked into 10 Horizon 2020 energy projects. These placements have been an opportunity for hosts and interns to reflect on how to help social sciences and humanities work become embedded into existing energy initiatives to maximise impact.
Sybille Reitz and Andrzej Ceglarz from Bavarian School of Public Policy (Technical University Munich, Germany) joined the BioEnergyTrain H2020 project for two weeks and were hosted by the Slovenian Transmission System Operator (ELES) in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Find out more about their experience in this video they made at the end of the placement.
