The European LPG Association, AEGPL is introducing the LPG Young Talent Grant. With this programme, AEGPL aims at rewarding creative and innovative projects developed by talented young people with an interest in the energy sector. The LPG Young Talent Grant will have its first edition in 2018 and is open to all students that fit the criteria specified below. The LPG Young Talent Grant calls for submissions into two different categories:

Technical & research

Business development

Eligibility

We are looking for undergraduate, graduate, master students or PHDs from any academic background – i.e. directly related to energy or not - that are still studying or have graduated in 2018, with a keen interest in the field of energy and in the LPG sector in particular.

Benefits

The grants will be divided in two categories:  Technical & research and Business development. The winners will be selected by a Jury composed of senior representatives from the main LPG companies in Europe and from national LPG associations.

The winner of each category will receive €1500, and will have the opportunity to present in November his/her project in front of the AEGPL General Assembly, which gathers all major players from the LPG industry.

The winners will be invited to travel to Brussels and be part of a networking dinner with our members on the 28th of November.
