This is achieved by joint universal activities with a group of top world leading research centres (CENER and CEA) together with one of the best research intensive university (UNIMAN) who will provide access to extensive network and contacts in the field. The activities are mainly knowledge transfer and networking through a series of workshops, winter/summer schools, MRes and PhD programmes, internships, exchanges, meetings and mentoring.

MCAST Energy is experiencing a self-funding growth within its breath of energy research theme that lead on campus. In addition, the MCAST main campus infrastructure together with laboratories will be the first ‘living laboratories’ on the island, used for real-life applications while delivery training and research as well. This TWINNING proposal will provide a stimulus of required knowledge to become more efficient and competitive to an international level of excellence.
