Smart Energy Summer School will take place 19-30 August in Berlin (Siemens Technical Academy, first week) and Paris (Paris Sud University, second week)

Target audience

This Summer School is an EIT ICT Labs activitiy, where participants from all partners of EIT KICs are also welcome. The Summer School is open to company staff and academic students from different backgrounds and levels connected to smart energy. The target audience ranges from engineers and confirmed scientists to PhD students working in a field related to smart energy to Master and engineering students. Considered domains are those of power systems, control systems, signal processing, telecommunications, computer science and economics applied to power systems. 

Since there are limited places, preference will be given to PhD students and companies' staff. Master students and engineers will preferably be in their last year to make their participation at the summer school most beneficial.


All participants are kindly invited to register here. Please register before June 30. Kindly take note that a confirmation mail will follow registration.



The primary goal of the Smart Energy Summer School is to foster excellence in SmartGrids, from control systems to computer science and telecommunication, including economic aspects. 

The summer school aims at bringing a very broad training to students from several fields related to smart energy systems. Classes will range from basics of power systems to ICT for large energy systems, communication and security, economical aspects of energy, reliability of power systems, automation, state observers and estimation of systems' parameters, electric vehicles and their impact on the power system among others. 

Participating students will learn the current state of the art in SmartGrids and will be able to apply new techniques coming from various communities and backgrounds to their own domain. 

Courses will be given in English by experts from industry and academia working in various fields on the common topic of Smart Energy Systems.


Poster sessions are planned during extended coffee breaks. In order to receive their financial support, PhD students and company staff are required to bring a poster for presentation, and 1-2 slides for presentation.


For members (students and company staff) of partners of EIT KICs, the participation, flights (electronic tickets sent to participants) and accommodation costs (hotel or student residence) are covered by EIT.
