Energy and the Environment


One of the most critical and controversial topics of the 21st century – the process of harnessing, exploring and developing natural and manufactured global energy resources and their impact on the local and global environment in which we live is the focus of this EUCE theme.

The University of Alberta is home to the Helmholtz-Alberta Initiative (HAI), an international research partnership between the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres and the University of Alberta, aimed at developing technologies for environmentally sustainable energy. We work alongside HAI to explore and draw out policy debates in these areas of joint interest for Canada and the European Union.

Theme Leader: Dr. Stefan Scherer
