Bioenergy CPD courses launched through BioenNW

This spring, BioenNW Lead Partner the European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University is launching a suite of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses to enable individuals from throughout Europe to increase their personal knowledge, skills and employability in key areas relating to the bioenergy sector.

Designed by EBRI’s world-leading scientists and researchers, each course is a 3-day stand-alone course and you can just participate in one course… or all of them!

These courses are part of a pilot scheme, accredited by IChemE and supported through BioenNW, which allow individuals to take these courses at no cost to themselves or their organisation for a limited time.
