EPG Fellowship

 

EPG Fellowship – FALL 2020

 

The energy sector is undergoing deep transformations. These days, maybe more than ever, young professionals are studying and working in the energy field for its interconnections with the economy, society and environment. EPG has always focused its efforts, events, and programs on younger generations. Thus, we would like to encourage young energy professionals to think critically on how to address the challenges that the energy sector is facing.

For this reason, we are starting a new program, the EPG Fellowship, dedicated to students and young professionals, who are eager to join our community and be part of our activities and projects. Each year, we will be selecting two fellows (one in the fall and one in the spring) who will closely and remotely (non-resident engagement) work with our staff and experts on different topics and projects.
