The Masaryk University Centre in Telč will host the fifth annual Energy Community Summer School. The international institution called on postgraduate students, researchers from all energy-related disciplines and young people working in governmental institutions, companies, think tanks and the civil society sector to apply for the lectures and social and cultural activities.

The event is scheduled for August 22 to 29. The summer school is organized by the Energy Community Secretariat in cooperation with the Višegrad Fund. The Czech university is based in nearby Brno.

The announcement notes it is a multidisciplinary, hands-on program covering energy markets in transition and their challenges and adds top professionals and academics will lead it.

For the second consecutive time, up to five participants can come from outside the Energy Community region. The town in the country’s south is a Unesco world culture heritage site.

Attendees will better understand science, policy and regulation behind the implementation of European aspects of energy law and rules, the organizers stressed. The summer school combines disciplines and approaches underpinning energy-related projects and reforms.

It is accredited in accordance with the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, carrying 3 ECTS points. The Energy Community Summer School is free of charge and includes accommodation, but not travel costs.

It is supported by a network of academic and research institutions from the region and beyond. Applications will be received through March 31.

The Jagiellonian University and AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków, Poland, were responsible for the fourth edition. It was held from August 24 to 31, 2019.

Scientific, legal, economic, cultural, political, and technical aspects of the energy supply chain were the main themes in the classes. The summer school is usually intended for forty participants.

The first summer school was held in Albania’s capital Tirana in 2016. The second one was in Ohrid in North Macedonia, followed by Croatia’s Split.
