The University of Tokyo accepts applications from students, who wish to participate in the following program organized by AUA (Asian Universities Alliance). The theme of the program is “Decentralized Off-grid Solar Solutions”. This program will be conducted in a multidisciplinary approach, involving lectures from the SoULS team, demo of the solar off-grid solutions, field visit to solar PV cook-stove project by the SoULS team, etc. See the attachment “AUA S3 Brief introduction” for details of the program content and schedule.
(Note about the field visit to Betul)
The attachment “AUA S3 Brief introduction” states as follows.
“The field location is near Betul district in the state of Madhya Pradesh, about 780 km from Mumbai. To and from location involves overnight train (AC sleeper) + road journey via Nagpur. Students participating will have to provide their own insurance for this program.”
As the journey to Betul will include an overnight train (probably 12 hours or more one way) and road journey, the program will be a hard one. Students need to understand its potential physical burden when they apply.
Date: December 9 - December 15, 2019
Venue: Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay) and Betul (as the field visit site)
Capacity: 2 undergraduate and graduate level students (potential for two students to be placed on a waiting list)
