Enbrain, Building capacity in renewable and sustainable energy for Libya

The overall objective of Enbrain proposal is to fill this gap through the design and develop of an innovative educational platform based on new courses, e-learning methods and digital tools that may promote a systemic multi-dimensional vision of the global energy challenge.

The specific objectives of this project are:

  • Design of a Master in Renewable and Sustainable Energy in Libya (15 courses, 120 ECTS) following a multi-level approach in capacity building. Modules will 1) include technical subjects focusing on the workforce to create jobs that meet industrial local needs; 2) build institutional and administrative capacity, therefore focusing on economics, legislation, social disciplines; 3) facilitate the dialogue and the exchange of experiences between professionals coming from regulatory, financing and industrial contexts. A MOOC will be designed to facilitate the multi-disciplinary approach.
  • Pilot start-up the Master in Renewable and Sustainable energy in at least one Partner Country University;
  • Pilot start-up seed-courses (>7 courses, 60 ECTS) about Renewable and Sustainable Energy to be integrated into existing curricula in each of Partner Country Universities;
  • Create an open platform to engage citizens in renewable and sustainable energy via the creation of a MOOC for citizens.
