This school is aimed at students, researchers, professionals, decision makers and stakeholders from the public and business sectors who wish to gain up-to-date knowledge and discuss with specialists from Québec, Brazil, South Africa, Austria, Bavaria, Georgia (US) and China on the different forms of renewable energy and their technical, social and economic issues. High-calibre researchers from these different regions will meet with the students of the school.

The school will be complemented by industrial tours (and a group exercise where students will be invited to imagine the energy of the future and share their ideas with a large and prestigious audience at the end of the school.
