The organisers are inviting early career researchers to apply to participate in the workshops. The funding will cover expenses related to participation in the workshop for all successful participants, including accommodation, travel and subsistence.

Workshop: "Energy security – Sustainable management of natural resources" | Almaty | 27 June – 1 July 2016
The workshop focuses on the key dimension of energy security that is the expansion of energy production from renewable energy sources (RES). The workshop addresses Kazakhstan’s need to better understand why RES are critical for its energy security, and how to create conditions for expanding their use, as the nation’s decreased reliance on oil will ensure greater economic and environmental sustainability. The main objectives of the workshop are to build participants’ research capacity, inform Kazakhstan’s energy security policy, and foster collaborative work between participants and the partner institutions.
Participants from various fields, such as economics, management, business, energy, sustainability, ecology and others are welcome to apply.
