Energy for Sustainability
Energy for Sustainability (EfS) is an initiative of the University of Coimbra (UC), bringing together professors and researchers from UC Faculties, with long experience in teaching, research, technology transfer, and consulting in several areas, namely energy and sustainable development.
This initiative aims at transferring knowledge to society through interaction with policy makers, managers, and technicians in positions of responsibility throughout multiple sectors of activity. To keep a strong link with real-world problems, the EfS initiative involves companies and other organizations that integrate its External Advisory and assessment Board (CEAA).
Within the EfS initiative, the University of Coimbra offers advanced educational programs, which include a Doctoral degree in association with the MIT Portugal Program, as well as a Masters degree and a Specialization course offered within the University.
