IAEE is open to receive proposals for any Summer School Program that enhances IAEE activities subject to some minimum requirements in terms of:
We recognize that there is a distinction between the IAEE tradition of branding conferences or seminars, and what here is more of a workshop or an academic and professional training program. Nevertheless we will rely on the successful model already used for conferences to select Summer School programs.
There should be no monopoly on the programs supported by the IAEE, and the IAEE must not partner with any one academic institution to regularly produce a Summer School program with that institution to the exclusion of others. In particular, regional chapters where affiliates contain members from different institutions should design a portable curriculum or more than one program running within the region.
Any individual/institution interested in running a program must present a proposal following the guidelines described below.
Most academic institutions, whether non-profit or for profit, receive part of their revenues from the tuitions they charge. Similarly, IAEE endorsement of academic and professional educational and training programs should be of some financial benefit to IAEE, in addition to being a way of enhancing the IAEE reputation. Any new source of IAEE revenue can be used to support scholarships and other enterprises aimed at furthering the goals of the energy economics profession. A proposal for an IAEE branded professional/academic training program should therefore present a budget and a scheme for sharing financial benefits with IAEE.
IAEE might grant Certificates of Attendance for the participants according to the proper characteristics of the program (attendance, success completion, etc).
