/GrEnFIn Description

The GrEnFIn project aims to provide the Energy Sector's stakeholders the figure of the Sustainable Energy experts professional.

/GrEnFIn Consortium

The project involves 14 partners representing 9 European countries and Brasil. Contact the transnational coordinators to participate GrEnFIn project.

/Project Meetings

This section provides the access to the information about the transnational meetings and to all related documents of GrEnFIn project.

Academic EP

GrEnFIn stands for greening energy by promoting the transition to renewable energy sources, thus decarbonizing the EU economy, and the instruments to finance it, accounting for risk, returns and impacts. In line with the key elements of the Innovation Union, the key objectives of EU2030 strategy and the Modernisation Agenda objectives, the project has the aim of promoting high-level professionality and employability in the green energy sector through investment in knowledge and competences.

Professional Modules

The GrEnFIn Alliance intends to shape a new Sustainable Energy Expert, through a Joint Study Programme targeted to HE students and a Professional Module targeted to personnel actually operating in the energy job market. The enterprises will play a central role as a constant link to energy market needs for a sustainable growth of the economy, in identifying the expected learning outcomes, the key competences and skills of the professional figures to develop in order to meet those specific needs of the job market.

Summer/Winter School

Students will learn how to integrate in the energy investment strategies considerations on climate-related risks and opportunities based on new climate stress-test methodologies that allow to account for both the exposure of the energy investments to climate risks (and thus the potential losses due to carbon stranded assets) at the plant level, and the opportunities for impact on climate action (i.e. climate migration, via improved energy efficiency and emission reduction from energy and electricity production).

Summer/Winter Training

Professionals/managers attending the training experience will be awarded a certificate, with the logo of the issuing institutions, describing the skills and competences acquired. Administrative staffs will be consulted in order to call for a compliance to the ECVET policy.

Full Immersion Experience

The full-immersion experience for students and professional is the space in which exchanges between future and actual energy professionals take place. They implement new pedagogical methodologies characterized by a close collaboration between HEIs and enterprises that will build up a synergy between public and private entities (energy business experts and researchers) able to promote exchanges and networking, with the aim to develop new alliances for the potential enlargement of the consortium.

The GrEnFin Project

GrEnFIn Erasmus+/Knowledge Alliance project aims to provide the Energy Sector’s stakeholders (energy providers, private companies, research institutes,…) the figure of the Sustainable Energy experts professional, i.e. European high skilled professionals capable to face the changing challenges in the field with an inclusive global logic. Its main expected results are the development of an innovative Joint Master Degree in the Green Energy and Finance targeting young students, but also a Professional Module to train companies’ staff and experts already active in the labor market.

Third Virtual Partners' Meeting

Third Virtual Partners' Meeting

The Third Virtual Project meeting of GrEnFIn that was supposed to be held in Bologna, was instead took place virtually (because of the circumstances of COVID-19) through the help of Microsoft TEAMS. As you can see the Agenda was planned in 2 days in total, 3 hours each. The meeting took place on 15th and 16th of June, 2.30 PM – 5.30 PM (Brussels Time). The time table is taking as reference the Brussels Time Zone. In order to overcome the Time Zone matter, and make the meeting participation feasible for our Brazilian partner, we planned the schedule of each day between the 2.30 PM and the 5.30 PM (Brussels Time). The meeting sessions were tailored in order to be consistent with the project development stage and make the participation efficient for all the partners even at distance. During the meeting we had the chance to discuss all the aspects related to the First edition of the GrEnFIn Summer School and thanks to the presentation of the HEIs partners, we gave the official start to the WP4 – Pilot Class activities. We recall the Quality assessment process, dedicated a moment for a feedback about the First Progress Report and saw together the next milestones of the Project. Every morning before the Virtual project meeting, we have sent the presentations that were on the Agenda for the day, in order to give all partners the opportunity to get in the topics in advance.


The results of the survey

The results of the survey

The GrEnFIn stakeholders survey is officially closed and we want to thank all involved stakeholders for their precious collaboration. The analysed results paint an interesting picture of the energy transition, offering regional and sector insights on the challenges and needs of different companies. The overall message, in a nutshell, is that the energy transition is real, is now, and will get more and more relevant in the future; to be able to handle it, there is a clear need of effective collaboration between Industry and Academia, from graduate studies to life-long learning. For the full results please see the Report on the consultation


Second Partners Meeting

Second Partners Meeting

The Second Project meeting of GrEnFIn originally scheduled to be held in Vienna, instead took place virtually, this was because of the current COVID-19 pandemic emergency. The Consortium agreed anyway to carry on with the work and meet on Microsoft TEAMS platform, on the 21st, 22nd, and 23th April 2020. The sections where from 3.00 PM till 6.00 PM (Brussels Time) in order to allow all the partners to participate despite the different time zones.

All Consortium Partners participated at the meeting. The first day Prof. Silvia Romagnoli introduced the meeting with an effective recap of the updates, adjustment and results achieved during the start-up phase of the project. UNIBO then presented the latest outcomes of WP2: stakeholders consultation, validations activities and survey, and the University Paris-Dauphine together with Pixel had a session to deeper explain the importance of the website and a focus on disseminations events, also considering the current international situation. The 22nd was focused to the Quality (WP9) and Evaluation Plan (WP10) and WP3: Draft curriculum development with a preliminary draft of the summer school structure.  During the last meeting day the focus was on Project Management aspects. First the Project Management Framework (WP1) was presented and discussed and then the rest of the section was dedicated to refresh and discuss about the upcoming first internal progress report. The meeting was a good opportunity for all partners to have a look at the activities and Todolist of each WP for the next months before the First Summer School and the following Project Meeting scheduled next June.
