Sample Short Course


27 August 2015

Short courses are designed to provide updates on recent advances in the science & technology of energy generation, and the social, policy, economic and governance aspects of energy change for policy makers and professionals.   They can be tailored to meet the needs of a specific audience, and can be scheduled over consecutive days or spread over weeks.    Alternatively we can arrange a short briefing session on a specific topic.
