About The UNESCO Chair MATECSS

The UNESCO Chair MATECSS aims to address the goal of achieving Sustainable Energy for All though a science-based response built on sharing knowledge on emerging energy technologies. Knowledge sharing will be accomplished through a program of visiting professorships, international workshops and student exchanges. In addition, MATECSS will build capacity by training PhD students from developing countries in Canada (supported by scholarships and tuition waivers), and through the web-based delivery of courses directly to students in developing countries. MATECSS is conceived to strengthen both North-South and South-South partnerships.
