This conference, as usual, is a great platform for the world scientists and industries in the environmental and energy sector to meet and share ideas and experiences on recent work as well as on new perspectives resulting from recent innovation. During this conference, there will be various symposia and panels to discuss a variety of topics regarding present progress and innovation in scientific research and technology development in related sectors and activities.
A Social Programme will also be scheduled, offering ample opportunities to renew long-standing friendships and forge new ones from all around the world. The conference will also provide an excellent opportunity to experience traditional South American culture.
1st WasteEng Conference Series Summer School (Aug. 28-29, 2014)
The 1st WasteEng Conference Series summer school will offer exclusive programmes designed in close collaboration with leading experts. This will give you a unique opportunity to develop your engineering skills in an industrial setting and work with highly topical technological cases.
You will get the opportunity to work in teams with students and young engineers from many different countries and with many different engineering profiles. The courses will be taught by some of the best profiles within the area of renewable energy, and you will be introduced to a new approach to problem solving.
The American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) will grant the courses with credit such as CEU (Continuing Education Unit) and PDH (Professional Development Hour).
Looking forward to seeing you in Rio!
