It is our pleasure to announce that registration for the 19th annual IKEM Academy: Energy and Climate is now open! During this year's IKEM Academy "Our energy future: Innovation and participation to reach our climate targets", we look forward to once again welcoming participants to Berlin for site visits, interactive workshops and expert presentations.

Covering five days from 11 to 15 July, the event will open with a look at the state of the global energy transition, governance and challenges, and the need for socially just transformation process. The programme will then narrow its scope to address the potential of the energy transition to empower people, investigating citizen-driven climate litigation and the importance of locally produced green energy. And on the last day we will focus on sector coupling and sustainable mobility and conclude a co-creative workshop that proposes a roadmap to a sustainable energy future.


The IKEM Academy adopts an interdisciplinary perspective that examines the social, policy, technological, regulatory and economic aspects of major issues and admits a limited number of participants with relevant academic and professional experience in the field, ensuring rich and insightful exchanges.

Spaces are limited, so we encourage early applications.

You can find an outline of the programme below. Further details are available on our website. We look forward to hearing from you and as always, don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or remarks.
