CSC Trains China’s Energy Talents by Working with International Journal
The Chinese Scholarship Council (CSC) is working with the well-known international journal “Applied Energy” and Sweden’s Mälardalen University (MDH) to fulfil its environmental talent training needs. The opportunity is being provided to PhD and Master’s degree holders (with the exception of those in policy research) who have English proficiency (as no language training is provided). The applicants will be fully funded to undertake 2 weeks of training in China, followed by 3 months of training, workshops and on-site visits in Sweden, and then 6-15 months of research through associated institutions around the world in areas of energy supply, energy conversion, reduction technology, AI energy application, storage technology, sustainable development, innovation and commercialization.
“Applied Energy” will be arranging global research institutions to host candidates through its international editorial team. A total of 40 supervisors from well-known universities in more than 10 countries have agreed to be part of this program. These universities include Oxford, Cambridge, UC Berkeley and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden and the Singapore National University. Between 35 and 50 scholars are expected for the first scholarship in-take in 2018.
