The 5th Doctoral Colloquium BIOENERGY (DOC2022) will take place this year from 13 to 14 September 2022 at the DBFZ in Leipzig. It will be supported by the international Scientific Advisory Board, consisting of 47 renowned bioenergy scientists from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and Norway and representing 38 research and higher education institutions. The organisers of the 5th Doctoral Colloquium BIOENERGY are calling for abstracts and posters (extended deadline: 16 May 2022)! The established event, which is mainly aimed at young scientists, is now taking place for the fifth time. It serves as a platform for young scientists to further their qualifications and offers the opportunity for networking and scientific exchange. PhD students from universities and other research institutions present and discuss their latest results and progress.

Bioenergy as a versatile energy source is indispensable for the success of the energy transition (Energiewende), but also for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The energy system of the future requires sustainable, efficient, flexible and innovative solutions. Research in this area is already diverse and at a high level. However, networking within the research landscape still needs to be expanded in order to deepen the exchange of knowledge between researchers and to use the synergies and excellence in research more efficiently as well as  innovatively.

Background

Future researchers, industry leaders and policy makers need to be brought together at an early stage to share knowledge and discuss research gaps and challenges. At the same time, networking between scientific institutions that are already intensively involved in bioenergy research needs to be expanded.

Addressing that demand, the Doctoral Colloquium BIOENERGY was initiated in 2018. Since then, it not only serves as a platform for junior scientists to gain further qualification, but also provides them an opportunity for networking and scientific exchange. Doctoral researchers from both universities and other research institutions present and discuss their latest results and advancements.

Topics

The Doctoral Colloquium BIOENERGY addresses every part of the biomass conversion chain, from the feedstock via different conversion pathways and their technological implementation, up to the resulting products and services. Bioenergy system analyses and system integration measures round off the topic.

Theme fields (inter alia)

  • Sustainable resource base
  • Bioenergy system analysis 
  • Thermochemical conversion
  • Biochemical conversion
  • Biorefineries / Biofuels

Language of the event

The event language is English.

Target Group

Tomorrow's knowledge and decision-makers are invited to meet, to share knowledge and discuss research gaps and challenges already today. The 5th Doctoral Colloquium BIOENERGY (DOC2022) offers you this platform for professional exchange in the field of bioenergy. Generally, students doing their PhD in the field of bioenergy and at an advanced stage of their work are cordially invited to present their scientific results, methods and findings.
