Early stage research training in integrated energy conversion for a sustainable environment

Project information

Grant agreement ID: 21018

  • Start date

    1 March 2006

  • End date

Funded under:

FP6-MOBILITY

Coordinated by:

Objective

The INECSE programme has the mission of training young researchers in the field of Energy Technology and is organised by five renowned Universities (Abo Akademi (FL), Cardiff University (UK), Delft University of Technology (NL), University of Stuttgart (D) and Technical University of Munich (D)) and three Applied Research Centres (ENEL Produzione-Ricerca (I), Instytut Energetyki (PL) and CNR-Istituto Ricerche Combustione (I)).

The general subject of the programme is the "Integrated Energy Conversion for a Sustainable Environment", covering four areas particularly critical for the advent of future energy technologies: the integration of renewables in high efficiency systems, the development of low-to-zero emission processes, the production and utilisation of H2 and other sustainable fuels, the capture and sequestration of CO2. The INECSE programme is open to young Ph.D. students and/or University graduates in Engineering, Physics, Chemistry and Biological Sciences. It provides that Fellows will always carry out their activities in three countries different from that of origin, so that they will be exposed to different schools of thought.

While a longer period at one Institution will be used by Fellows for carrying out experimental research on particular aspects of the most advanced energy technologies, shorter periods at two other Institutions will be mainly used to widen their scientific, technological and managerial background. In this frame, Fellows oriented to University Research shall spend at least one short stay at one of the Applied Research Centres (and vice-versa) and shall also attend a minimum number of complementary courses both on "technical" and "non-technical" subjects. In each activity Fellows will be required to play an active role by writing re ports and/or short theses and discussing them with their Supervisors and experts of Partner Institutions, or by presenting their major results at International Conferences and Workshops.
