Project description
The Summer School will focus on equipping the participants with scientific and engineering knowledge about solar- and bioenergy on the one hand, on the other hand it should provide competences in project management to bring this knowledge into practice. The program won’t be held by us but by experts we hire. For example, PwC might support us in project management lectures.

Objectives and Target Group
The Summer School addresses engineering students, mainly from Cairo. By the end of the weeks, participants should have a concrete plan for an energy project. We as Team Egypt also hope for helpful impulses to improve our work.

Timeframe
The Summer School should be held in August 2014 for the first time. We anticipate about 50 participants. At the moment, we are quite involved in planning. We hope to continue next years with further Summer Schools.

Partners and Supporter
