The Energy Community Secretariat in consultation with a network of academic and research institutions of the participating countries has selected the participants of the second edition of the Energy Community Summer School, to take place in Ohrid in late summer this year.

Following a call announced for the second Summer School in January 2017, 188 total applications submitted, 159 applicants met the selection criteria, of which the 40 most qualified were selected. Ensuring a geographical as well as a gender balance, the number of successful applicants is split 50/50 between men and women from 29 countries.

The selected participants come from a wide variety of backgrounds, including government, postgraduate studies, research institutions, academia, private sector and non-governmental organisations

The second Energy Community Summer School will take place in Ohrid (former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia) from 26 August to 2 September 2017.

It is organised by the Energy Community in close collaboration with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the Visegrad Fund. It will be hosted by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies of the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University, Skopje.

The first Energy Community Summer School took place in Tirana last year. The eight-day event gathered 40 postgraduate students and young professionals representing 27 nationalities.
