The Energy Community Secretariat has launched the call for applications for the fourth Energy Community Summer School. The deadline is March 31, with 40 applicants to be selected for this year’s edition in Krakow, Poland.

This year’s Summer School will take place from August 24 to August 31, 2019 at the Jagiellonian University and AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, Poland, the Secretariat said in a press release.

The 2019 Summer School will cover scientific, legal, economic, cultural, political, and technical aspects of the energy supply chain.

During the training, participants will attend lectures taught by high-level scholars from academia as well as experts and practitioners from leading energy companies etc.

The Summer School offers an opportunity to 40 postgraduate students and young professionals to gain an in-depth knowledge of the energy sectors in their full complexity and provide them with a platform for exchange and contribution to shaping the sectors’ future, the press release reads.

According to the Secretariat, the Summer School specifically targets highly motivated postgraduate students (masters or Ph.D.), researchers from all energy-related disciplines, young professionals from governmental institutions, companies, think-tanks, and NGOs.

For the first time this year, the Summer School will be open to up to five participants from outside the Energy Community Region.

Participation is free of charge for applicants having passed the selection procedure (to apply follow the link).

The first Summer School was held in Tirana (Albania) in 2016, the second in Ohrid (Macedonia) in 2017, and the third in Split (Croatia) last year.

The project is organized by the Energy Community Secretariat in cooperation with the Visegrad Fund, the GIZ Open Regional Fund for South-East Europe – Energy Efficiency (ORF-EE), which is financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, and implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).

Polis University, Tirana; Comenius University Bratislava; Jagiellonian University, Krakow; Masaryk University, Brno and REKK, Budapest act as project partners since 2016. DOOR and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture in Split joined the team of partners in 2018.
