 (1) European Energy Students Network Survey 
 | Website
We envision a better-connected network of energy professionals who can catalyze progress to reach the world's climate change and energy development objectives by optimizing existing idea, resources, and technologies. EESN intends to foster connections among students and young professionals in Europe with energy-related companies, start-ups, policy-makers and NGOs to build a community of future energy leaders who can see and solve the energy challenge from various vantage points.The aim of this survey is to develop an understanding of what energy students require for career development whilst at, and after university. Once (we) the students identify what is needed, we can raise awareness with universities, firms and policy-makers, and make change happen together.
