This year’s campus time of the study programme Especialización en Energías Renovables* was held for the first time virtually live from Costa Rica and Berlin, Germany. Students from Nicaragua, Colombia, Peru, Argentina, Costa Rica and Guatemala took part in the 6th edition of the ‘semana presencial’.
The schedule of this special issue was nevertheless also filled with workshops and conferences on Energy Transition and Green Recovery and lots of networking activities. One of the highlights on these five days were alumni, who shared their experience in this academic programme and how it boosted their career in renewable energies.
Despite the great response we do hope, next year’s semana presencial can be held face-to-face at the Universidad EARTH Campus in Costa Rica again!
*This academic program is offered in cooperation with the Renewables Academy in Berlin and with the support of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS) as part of their regional programme “Energy Security and Climate Change in Latin America”. For further information please visit our website.
