Short Courses

Short Courses present fundamentals necessary to understand the processes of conversion of renewable energies, or the use of certain tools used in research or applications. Each edition of CBENS proposes new minicourses, with its own menus, many of them aimed at preparing students less experienced in the subject and who in the following days will participate in the activities of the Congress, and others aimed at more experienced staff to present certain scientific procedures or good practices in systems. The vacancies are limited and the minicourses always take place on the first day of the Congress, in parallel with the openings of secretarial and registration activities. In this edition the short courses will be offered on April 17, 2018. (in Portuguese only)
