WELSH ENERGY SECTOR TRAINING: A CASE STUDY OF RESEARCH INFORMING EDUCATION
Published: 4 Sep 2014
Abstract: Many countries report challenges translating research into commercial practice. Although funding is often blamed, lack of appropriate dissemination and engagement with industry can also be an issue. The Low Carbon Research Institute has tackled these issues through Welsh Energy Sector Training. Professional training is being derived from research in the fields of Hydrogen, Large scale power generation, Low carbon built environment, Marine energy and solar PV. Widespread engagement with industry has identified the most relevant research based training topics as well as refining delivery methods.
Keywords: research, training, continuing professional development
