Training courses in energy policy for third countries

The European Commission, DG XVII, has launched an open call to tender for preparatory work with a view to organizing training courses in energy policy for third countries under the SYNERGY programme for energy cooperation with third countries.

SYNERGY intends to launch a project which will allow nationals of third countries to follow long-term post-graduate courses in a European university or specialized institute, in order to introduce students to European methods. In this way, SYNERGY is proposing the future financing of long-term training courses.

The tenderer will be expected, in particular, to:

- Identify institutes (universities, schools, etc.) in the European Union currently offering university level/quality training in matters of energy policy and management;
- Conduct a survey in order to determine those institutes willing to adjust their courses to cater for the arrival of foreign nationals (refresher courses, where necessary);
- Identify existing cooperation agreements between various institutes in the European Union and, on the other hand, between European and non-European institutes with an interest in energy policy.
