During the course of the next DS2BE-2017, this will be a two-day event on 26-27 April 2017 in Liège, we invite two types of presentations differentiated along the stage of the PhD research:

Short Presentation / Poster session : PhD researchers at the beginning of their research (1st -2nd year of PhD) are invited to make a presentation and exhibition of their work in the form of a poster (A0 size). Candidates for this session are required to submit a draft poster before the deadline and the consent of their Supervisor(s). Each presentation will be given 10 minutes ; 5’ for a concise presentation followed by 5’ of feed-back.

Seminar n°2

 

Wednesday April 30th, the VUB research lab for architectural engineering (æ-lab) hosted the Doctoral Seminar on Sustainability Research in the Built Environment (DS²BE). On this second try-out in a series of three, host professor Niels De Temmerman welcomed over 20 researchers from 7 different Belgian Universities.

At this seminar, PhD candidates Aristide Athanassiadis (ULB), Aranzazu Galan Gonzalez (ULB) and Catalina Codruta Dobre (ULB) illustrated insightfully how their work could contribute to a better understanding of the impact of building on our environment through the development of new models. Subsequently, professor Ahmed Z. Khan chaired a fundamental discussion between audience and presenters. Agenda:

The City as a Laboratory: Learning about sustainable urban development 

by Sybrand Tjallingii

 

 

Researchers, practitioners and users of the urban landscape need each other in a process of transdisciplinary learning.
This confronts us with some intriguing questions:
How can we find a common language for learning that combines story telling and images with quantifying and numbers?
How can we learn from urban situations and projects characterized by complexity and uncertainty?
To what extent we can combine research and design?
In this lecture, these questions are discussed using some cases and schemes, combining practice and theory.

 

 

 
Regenerative Region

by Peter Droege

 

Regions undergo a renaissance in this globalised world, re-emerging as vital domains of collective life, sources of cultural identity, as planning territories and economic spaces – and as autonomous energy systems. Regions play a critical role in working towards to a carbon emissions and nuclear free future. At the regional level resilient renewable energy systems can evolve, supporting community health and security – and producing substantial value added benefits. Indeed, in the struggle for renewable energy independence, the future belongs to renewable energy, sustainable local income generation and, urgently, regional carbon sequestration strategies.

A five-university consortium led by Professor Droege studied the Lake Constance Region, a 15’0000 square kilometre large territory across four central European countries over four years, and demonstrated how it can become a model region, and how its potentials can be fully utilised, building on the many current initiatives. The multidisciplinary and scientifically based publication is now released: it explores the energetic, organisational and economic opportunities of a renewably autonomous region. The authors present directions and tangible possibilities for the regional economy, spatial development, transport, urban design and architecture, in at once practical and model ways.
