Professional short courses

The ANU Energy Change Institute offers state-of-the-art professional short courses and briefings for governments departments and commercial participants. ECI short courses are designed to provide updates for policymakers and professionals on recent advances in the science, technology, social, policy, economic and governance aspects of energy change.

A typical course comprises sessions presented by leading ANU academics, with each topic presented by an expert in the field. They can be tailored to meet the needs of a specific audience, and can be scheduled over consecutive days or spread over weeks. Alternatively a short briefing session on a specific topic can be arranged.
