Energy and the environment are two subjects linked to the main societal challenges described in the strategic European research project Horizon H2020. In this context, the European doctoral program in Energy and Environment, EDENE, is an ambitious multidisciplinary, intersectoral and international program over a period of 5 years offering quality training to 30 international and highly qualified doctoral students in this field. The ambition of EDENE is to create a working dynamic around innovative subjects on these topics in all disciplines where the Université de Pau et des Pays de l' Adour (UPPA) enjoys proven scientific recognition.

Through its Second Call for Projects, CALL#2, EDENE will allow 10 excellent young researchers to develop their talent beyond the Master, via a project of their choice, while integrating the best teams of the UPPA and possible partners. Motivated candidates are asked to define their own research project in cooperation with their host unit at the UPPA, so they can develop a successful cooperation in terms of research, excellence and career development. All research areas are accepted as long as the project has a connection to energy and/or the environment in a broad definition of the terms.
