University of Campinas (Unicamp), in Campinas, Brazil
The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP, www.fapesp.br/en) is organizing an “Advanced School on the Present and Future of Bioenergy”, which will take place at the University of Campinas (Unicamp), in Campinas, Brazil, between October 10 and 17, 2014.
Such Advanced Schools are not regular scientific conferences (for a list of all Advanced Schools already organized by FAPESP, please see www.fapesp.br/en/7800). Their purpose is to bring together undergraduate and graduate students, as well as young researchers, from Brazil and abroad, to learn about advanced topics in different areas of knowledge. 
In the particular case of this “Advanced School on the Present and Future of Bioenergy”, FAPESP will bring together reknown lecturers which are specialists in the different areas that fall within the broad scope of Bioenergy (see preliminary program above). The event will host 120 students from all over the world and there will be opportunities for strong interaction among participants and also to visit research institutions and industries in the state of São Paulo that are actively involved in Bioenergy.
Applications will be open for undergraduate and graduate students and young researchers (until seven years) from all countries, from April 14 until June 10, 2014. Applications shall be made via this website (which will soon be updated for this purpose). By July 10, 2014, selected candidates will be informed about their acceptance, so that they have 3 months time to make the necessary arrangements to come to Brazil. In case a person is selected to attend this Advanced School, FAPESP will cover travel and lodging costs during the time of the School.
We hope you will find this a very exciting opportunity and that you will apply yourself and/or inform your colleagues about this event.
In case you have any doubt, please contact us by email: bioenergyschool@nipeunicamp.org.br
Looking forward to seeing you in Campinas (Brazil)!
