GrEnFIn is an EU project supported by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
The project starts from the idea that in order to achieve a successful energy transition and to reach our 2030 objectives and those set by the Paris Agreement, it is necessary to train experts in sustainable development, particularly in the field of energy. To do so, it uses an educational approach for both students and professionals and makes them experts in green energy, sustainable finance, economic policy and business. GrEnFIn offers summer schools for students and trainings for professionals from the energy job market.
Last summer, the GrEnFIn-Summer School took place online with 30 hours of intensive lectures but also stimulating teamwork to evaluate the impact of climate change on infrastructure with statistical methods. At the end of their training, the students receive a joint master’s degree.
Professionals/managers attending the professional module are awarded a certificate of the program. The module targets specific skills gap of the actual personnel working in the field allowing them to skill up to their profile according to the market requirements and supporting a clean transformation of the sector thanks to the knowledge of "green financial products".
The project involves 14 partners representing 9 European countries and Brasil.
It released its first newsletter featuring the European Green Deal, the COVID 19 effects on Greek energy market, and a look back at 2020 GrEnFIn summer school.
