In 2005 the Foreign and Commonwealth Office launched a new Fellowship scheme with the aim of bringing to the UK mid-career and senior professionals from a range of disciplines in predominantly Muslim countries for specially tailored three month courses.
The Institute for Energy Research and Policy (IERP) and the Centre for Studies in Security and Diplomacy at the University of Birmingham, and the UK Energy Research Centre, are running a Chevening Fellowship Programme on the "Economics of Energy", on behalf of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The programme is for 14 mid-career professionals from overseas (nominated by their local British Embassy or High Commission) and consists of twelve weeks of lectures, visits and placements. The objective of the programme is to promote an understanding of the economic dynamics of energy markets, and their technical, environmental and policy drivers. The Course Director is Professor Richard Green and the Programme Manager is Stacy Quinn.
The Institute for Energy Research and Policy and the Centre for Studies in Security and Diplomacy are delighted to welcome Chevening Fellows to Birmingham. We look forward to their having a life-long relationship with the University, and IERP in particular, to mutual benefit.
