The UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) is holding its seventh annual Energy
Summer School from 26 June - 1 July 2011 at the University of Warwick in 
English Midlands. There will be 100 places available for UK and
international students.

The School has been specifically designed to give first and second year PhD
students an understanding of energy systems as a whole and of pathways to
low-carbon and resilient energy systems. We welcome applications from those
engaged in energy-related research including technical, physical, social,
economic, environmental and business aspects of energy and energy systems.

We would like to invite you to nominate students to attend. There is no
charge for registered research students to attend the School; UKERC will
provide accommodation and all meals and materials for activities. The 
is conducted in English, and as it is highly interactive a good standard of
comprehension and spoken English is essential.

During the week-long course, which runs in parallel to UKERC's Annual
Assembly, students will:
*       Examine the challenge of the transition to a low-carbon, resilient
and affordable energy system;
*       Understand the global commercial, political, innovation and
technological challenges in the transition to a low-carbon system;
*       Be involved in high level debate on energy research priorities in a
number of key research areas, from demand reduction to future sources of
*       Be presented with a number of contrasting international 
on energy;
*       Have the opportunity to network with key academic, and energy
research contacts;
*       Research, develop, negotiate and agree a collective vision for a
low-carbon energy system and present the work to the UK Energy Research
*       Develop and practice professional skills in communication and

The course is professionally facilitated to provide continual support for
participants, and includes a number of networking opportunities as well as
social events.

Successful applicants will be notified by e-mail by mid-April 2011 and both
nominator and nominee will at that time be asked to formally accept the
place. Should the delegate subsequently withdraw and a suitable replacement
not be found, the nominator will be required to pay for the cost of the
unused place. The course is normally over-subscribed, and UKERC will select
delegates by giving preference to those in the second year of a PhD, to
provide an appropriate mix of specialist disciplines, and a balance of UK
and non-UK based students.

Nominations are now open until 1700hrs (5pm) GMT Thursday, 17 March 2011.
For convenience we ask that the student completes the nomination form, but
they will need to include your details as confirmation of endorsement.

The nomination form can be accessed from our website or by clicking on the
