Reesbe—the post-graduate school that makes a difference

Reesbe

To make sure that the doctoral students’ competence and research results are used to their full potential, Reesbe will summarise what has been done and look forward into the future in a series of three workshops. The first one will be an autumn meeting in Gävle 24-25 October.

Reesbe

Four years ago, the University of Gävle, Dalarna University and Mälardalen University, along with seventeen companies in the energy sector, started the industrial post-graduate school Reesbe (Resource-efficient Energy Systems in the Built Environment).

The industrial post-graduate school is evidence of a common commitment to improve energy production, energy distribution and energy use and, in this manner, substantially reduce our use of resources.

The core of Resbee’s activities is that universities collaborate with a large group of companies representing various lines of business. By capturing the full benefits of competence and experience from various sources, results will be created in the form of new knowledge.

Resbee research is conducted primarily by doctoral students employed by the business sector, while their supervisors are employed by the universities.

Research results are demonstrated in good academic outcomes and in that the competitiveness of the business sector improves as products, services and processes are improved and developed.

Capturing results

“Many of the doctoral students will complete their dissertations in 2018, and it is important that their competence and their research results are captured by the universities and by the companies,” says Ewa Wäckelgård, programme director.

For this reason, Reesbe will summarise what has been done and look forward into the future in a series of three workshops. The starting point will be an autumn meeting in Gävle 24-25 October. The meeting is co-hosted by the University of Gävle, Gävle Energi and Gavlefastigheter.
