More about us

Since 2014, the Technical University of Berlin (TU Berlin) has been offering postgraduate courses on sustainable development management known as the "Energy Masters" (MBA and MBL) on the EUREF Campus. These programs address the pressing issues related to sustainable development and aim to foster dialogue among various stakeholders. This prompted the organization of our “'Challenges in Sustainability” conferences.
The transition towards sustainable energy and energy usage has encountered and continues to face numerous challenges. Many observers argue that the potential for collaboration and knowledge exchange among key players, particularly research institutions, academia, and industry, remains largely untapped.
The conference is organized by Master-in-Energy, Mobility2Grid and EUREF-Talent Campus and nexus, with the support of the Berlin Senate, in the frame of the Berlin 2023 “Science Week”. The goal is to not only outline the current trends in the transition towards sustainable infrastructures (Energy, Mobility, Buildings, and Urban Structures) at both the German and European levels but also to examine the training requirements for the upcoming challenges. Our focus will be on promoting stronger connections between research, academia, and industry.
Starting in 2014, Technische Universität Berlin has been developing four parallel postgraduate courses at the EUREF Campus under the umbrella of "Energy Masters" (MBA and MBL), which delve into the current issues of sustainable development management. We aim to address the unique challenges encountered by various industries including energy, building and spatial development, and mobility. Our focus will be on exploring effective strategies to bolster collaboration among stakeholders and facilitate the seamless transfer of knowledge and expertise. The impetus to foster a dialogue among diverse stakeholders led to the inception of the annual conference.
