Save the Date! - 6th Doctoral Colloquium BIOENERGY

From 18th to 19th September 2023 the HAWK University of Applied Science and Arts in Göttingen will host the 6th Doctoral Colloquium BIOENERGY. Supported by the international Scientific Advisory Board, consisting of 46 renowned bioenergy scientists from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and Norway, we invite tomorrow's knowledge and decision-makers to present their scientific results, methods and findings. We also wish to facilitate international networking 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.

Stay tuned for the Call for Abstracts and Posters as well as the registration opening soon!Shortly you will find all information about the Call for Abstracts and the registration here at

Impressions from the DOC2022


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.


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.
