Novel materials and modern statistics for energy applications
This trio of short presentations will bring physicists and mathematicians together to discuss the role of novel materials and statistics in the path to sustainability. The talks will focus on three principal trends of research: 1) the use of innovative fabrication techniques to enhance both optical and thermoelectric properties of structural layers used for energy harvesting applications, 2) the deployment of nonparametric statistics for estimating intermittent and stochastic quantities arising from integrating renewable resources into currently existing power systems, and 3) the development of environmentally friendly materials with profound new properties stemming from the utilization of nanoparticles in combination with polymer matrices.

Harnessing the Power of Digital Technologies to Address the Climate Crisis: Challenges and Achievements
SUAD Youth COP ceremony 2023
The YOUTH COP is an entirely virtual mock negotiation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties (COP), organised by Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi in partnership with the Université Paris Cité and the Universidade Federal do Ceara. The project aims to provide a platform for university students from diverse backgrounds and regions worldwide to: 1. Develop critical thinking about climate change challenges. 2. Understand and promote the roles of states and international organizations in shaping global climate policies. 3. Improve interpersonal skills such as teamwork, compromise, and conflict resolution. By offering students the opportunity to engage in simulated COP process, the project helps build a more informed and empowered youth community ready to advocate for sustainable solutions on the global stage. The project has selected 25 teams (75 students) to simulate real-world climate challenges through 3 days of active negotiation, representing 25 different UNFCCC member states. They will discuss and produce documents on three proposed themes: Oceans, Loss and Damage Mechanism, and Energy Transition.

This panel aims to explore the integration of Indigenous perspectives and content into higher education. It will facilitate discussions on educational experiences, effective pedagogical approaches, and contemplate an initial roadmap for curriculum development. The panel will also address strategies for evaluating the impact of introducing Indigenous perspectives into university curricula.
