Based on its own long-term experience in contests for young Russian scientists, the Association «Global Energy» transforms its youth programme to international one. Now young energy scientists from all around the world have an opportunity to participate in the contest for the best research project and implementation of the idea.

The Association «Global Energy» has been implementing programmes for the young researchers and innovators for 16 years now, which helped to form energy of the future and to encourage scientists, who create technologically advanced applications.

 «The main goal of the international youth programme «Global energy» is to stimulate scientific activities among young scientists and specialists in the sphere of energy by providing them with grants and individual awards. It is important for us to encourage the dialogue and experience exchange between the young energy scientists in Russia and abroad and to form a personnel reserve,» – highlighted the Officer-in-Charge of the Association Alexander Ignatov.

 Students, young scientists and specialists under 40 years old, who are involved in research anddevelopment in energy, are welcomed to participate. Applications are admitted in English in two categories «Idea» and «Startup». Applicant is allowed to apply only once for only one category during one nomination cycle of the programme.

 International projects and research in the following spheres of energy: «Traditional Energy», «Non-Traditional Energetics», «New Ways of Applying Energy» will be considered in the category «Ideas». In every sphere there will be one winner. Each winner receives 1 million rubles to continue the research on the project for one year.

 International energy projects, that wereadopted into production during the last 5 years will be considered in the category «Startup». After substantive examination one winner will be defined and will be awarded an individual award of 1 million rubles.
