EAFES summer school open for entries

The European Agency for Energy Security (EAFES) has now opened the application process for its 2012 sustainable energy summer school at the University of Cambridge.

The organisation is urging professionals and students alike, with an interest in green energy and technology, to sign up for the event scheduled for 26 August – 01 September at Cambridge University’s Magdalene College campus.

Partly funded by EAFES’s partners, the course is accessible to participants for €450 per student or €600 per person. This includes all tuition, meals, accomodation and transport. Content will include understanding the technological challenges of different energy sources, experimental demonstrations, debates and European energy policy.

Dr Michal Chudý, executive director of EAFES, said: “This year we will hold our first ever sustainable energy summer school and it promises to be an excellent event. The programme will include a theoretical element featuring lectures and presentations as well as practical and interactive activities and great networking opportunities with policy, academic and energy research contacts and industry leaders. The courses throughout the week-long programme will be focused on the scientific, engineering, economic and political issues relating to sustainable energy and I’d recommend the summer school to anyone with an interest in sustainable energy, whether from a research, policy or other professional background.”
