Welcome to the 3rd Doctoral Colloquium BIOENERGY!

After a successful and scientifically sound 2nd PhD student colloquium, we are looking forward to welcoming you to the next event in Leipzig on 17-18 September 2020!

Bioenergy is a versatile energy source that is indispensable for the implementation of climate protection goals. However, a successful energy turnaround will also require sustainable, efficient and innovative solutions in the future. The research on this subject is already diverse and fist-rate and thus significant for the energy system transformation. However, there is still room for expansion of networks within the research landscape in order to deepen the exchange between researchers and practitioners.

In order to bring together tomorrow's knowledge and decision-makers today and to improve the networking of scientific institutions, the Germany-wide PhD colloquium on bioenergy is being arranged for the third time. The 3rd German Doctoral Colloquium is organised and professionally supervised by the DBFZ German Biomass Research Centre in cooperation with many other research institutions.

Stay informed about this event website as well as the company presence on Twitter and LinkedIn #DOC2020.


The aim of this event is to further qualify young scientists. On the other hand, the doctoral colloquium provides a platform for networking and professional exchange between young scientists. The latest results of university and university-related research from current, advanced or recently completed doctoral theses are to be presented to the scientific community and users from business and politics and critically discussed.

Target group

The doctoral colloquium serves as a platform for the exchange between young scientists and established researchers in the field of bioenergy.

Event language

The event language is English. A translation is not planned.
