Call for applications to participate in the 2nd Training School of COST Action TU1401

This Action investigates the inter-relationships between renewable energy production and landscape quality, and the role of public participation for the acceptance of renewable energy systems. The Action will develop a better understanding of how landscape protection and management, and renewable energy deployment can be reconciled to contribute socio-environmentally to the sustainable transformation of energy systems. This Action will consolidate and extend knowledge from a pan-European perspective using a modular methodological framework. This Action will enhance the science base for decision-making, and develop guidelines for public participation in planning renewable energy systems. The potential of sustainable landscape development, with innovative land uses producing synergies for landscape quality and renewable energy, will be revealed. Early Stage Researchers, PhD students and MSc students in geography, landscape, environmental science and ecology are eligible to apply for a grant as trainee in order to participate to the 2nd Training School of RELY (COST Action TU1401).
