Nationaal Congres Bodemenergie

Dear members,

Are you a proactive person with an interest in the energy transition? And have you always wanted to organize a congress? Then this is your chance! Starting from next year, the Nationaal Congres Bodemenergie (NCBE) (National Congress on production and storage of thermal energy) will be organized by a committee of the U.A.V., of which you could be a part! The NCBE is a high-level congress organized every two years by the U.A.V. for professionals, researchers, and students, where various speakers present the latest developments in the storage and production of thermal energy. See last year’s program on the right to get an idea of the congres.

The NCBE is a formal event that requires professionalism. This offers an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience in organizing a large and serious event, as well as to gain knowledge about the production and storage of thermal energy. Additionally, this event is a great addition to your CV and provides you with the opportunity to network extensively.

Within the committee, we are looking for a chair, secretary, treasurer and acquisition/PR. The time investment is as follows:

  • September – April: approximately 2 hours per week
  • April – end of June: approximately 5 hours per week

What we expect from you:

  • Looking for a challenge
  • Communicatively proficient in English
  • Available during the academic year 2023-2024. The event will take place at the end of June 2024.
