SHAPE ENERGY Call for Evidence
SHAPE ENERGY – Social sciences and Humanities for Advancing Policy in European Energy – represents a new €2m European platform for energy-related social sciences and humanities (energy-SSH) research. Energy-SSH has played less of a role to date in shaping European energy policy than Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines and, as such, the SHAPE ENERGY platform aims to develop Europe’s expertise in using and applying energy-SSH. SHAPE ENERGY directly feeds into the work of the European Commission’s strategy unit with responsibility for energy research and innovation.
The two-year SHAPE ENERGY project began in February 2017 and is coordinated by Anglia Ruskin University (UK). As part of its initial scoping work, it has just launched a Call for Evidence aiming to identify current understandings and future priorities for energy research from a wide range of research, policy and practitioner communities across Europe. As such, this call is not solely intended for energy-SSH researchers; we are keen to engage with energy-STEM and non-energy-SSH researchers – as well as those from policy, industry, NGOs and beyond – who may want to utilise energy-SSH research in the future.
This call is intentionally designed to be easy to do (only four core questions, 5-10mins). Responses will be anonymised and made publicly available free-of-charge in summer 2017 (via www.shapeenergy.eu - not yet launched). There will also be an accompanying SHAPE ENERGY reflective summary, on the basis of those responses.

CenSES Early Career Research School
15 early career researchers participated from five different institutions: Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, Vestlandsforsking, the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies of Culture (NTNU), Department of Industrial Economics and Technology Management (NTNU) and SINTEF.
The Early Career Research School was held at The Norwegian University Centre in Paris, NUCP, a French-Norwegian centre for the humanities and social sciences, with space and resources available for researchers based in Norway and France. The seminar started off with a welcome by the director of NUCP Professor Johannes Hjellebrekke and an introduction by Marianne Ryghaug, professor at the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies of Culture, NTNU, and deputy director of CenSES, about CenSES with a special focus on the role of early career researchers. All participants presented their research during the two days, and we got a good insight into and discussions about each other’s research areas and interests, where each participant had 20 minutes to present and get questions and comments on their work. The day ended with an interesting talk by Professor Jonathan Rutherford (Ecole des Ponts Paris Tech) about urban energy transitions. There were also ample opportunities to small talk and interact during coffee brakes, lunches and dinners.
Day two of the research school was organized as a workshop on teamwork and collaboration held by Marius Korsnes, director of Gibberish, an international improvisational theatre group based in Trondheim. Thereafter followed a short introduction about research dissemination and writing by Tomas Skjølsvold, Associate professor at the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies of Culture, NTNU. After this, the participants were divided into groups co-writing think pieces on different CenSES topics with aim of producing dissemination efforts. The group work yielded many new ideas, and showed some new avenues for possible collaboration across the different approaches that we have within CenSES. We expect these contributions to emerge in Norwegian and international media in the months to follow.
Selvsagt skal NTNU samarbeide med Statoil
