The European Master in Renewable Energy is an initiative proposed and developed by the European Renewable Energy Centres (EUREC) and a consortium of Universities outlined in the 'Partnering Universities' section.
The programme has been run since 2002 by a network of nine European Universities and research centres who are leading the way in renewable energy research, development and demonstration. It is coordinated by EUREC EEIG, a consortium of European renewable energy research centres, which has its headquarters in Brussels.The European Renewable Energy Research Centres Agency was established as a European Economic Interest Grouping in 1991 to strengthen and rationalise the European RD&D efforts in renewable energy technologies. As an independent association, it incorporates over 40 prominent RD&D groups from all over Europe.

The aim of the European Master in Sustainable Energy System Management is to provide postgraduate students with the skills required for employment in the Sustainable Energy industry. Students will specialise in business case analysis, modelling, project design and implementation. As a result of the foreign contact, the course requires, our students will have the international outlook essential to the industry HR needs. The core provides a solid foundation in systems management with legal, environmental, economic, social and technical aspects. Theoretical courses which also examine the socioeconomic issues surrounding the deployment of these technologies are supported by laboratory workshops. The studies for the core will be done in English.
