Visiting students from the REIC Summer School on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in SEE
A 3-day field visit of the REIC Summer school students, co-sponsored by the public company of waste management, Padua 3, will take place from 24 to 27 November 2010 in Padua (Italy). As part of their study trip, the students will be visiting UNESCO Venice Office on 26 November.
The study trip will provide a first-hand introduction to the implementation of a highly efficient and integrated waste management aimed at producing energy (biogas) and regenerating material for a new production life cycle (compost, raw plastic, etc). The students will visit the newly-installed geothermal power facilities enhancing the energetic self-sufficiency and limiting the GHG emissions of the waste management plant.
The 6th REIC Summer School on Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) in SEE organised in Fojnica, Bosnia and Herzegovina, from 23 August through 3 September 2010) and sponsored by the UNESCO Venice Office was addressed to young professionals and final year students from South-East European (SEE) countries. It was conceived to foster a closer cooperation among young SEE students in terms of scientific knowledge advancement and intercultural dialogue necessary for achieving sustainable development. The summer school took into account both environmental and societal aspects of renewable energy use and energy efficiency improvement. The UNESCO Venice Office’s support was oriented towards strengthening regional capacity-building in environmental management and encouraging the exchange and flow of information amongst young researchers.
Out of the 14 visiting students, 5 come from Bosnia and Herzegovina (Elvedin Adzem, Lukman Avdic, Nihad Harbas, Vedad Skaljic, Vedad Suljic), 1 from Bulgaria (Cvetoslava Coneva), 2 from Croatia (Dario Brdaric, Katja Nodilo), 3 from The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (Maria Lazova Ivana Simjanoska Zarko Milosevski), 3 from Serbia (Jelena Stojanovic, Ljilja Curcic, Sanja Nikolic).
