Professional short courses

The ANU Institute for Climate, Energy & Disaster Solutions regularly delivers short professional courses on recent advances in climate science, the energy transition, and disaster-risk science. We explain the social, policy, economic and governance aspects of these areas for policy makers and professionals. We also provide briefings on request.

A typical short course comprises several sessions, with each topic presented by a leading ANU expert in the field. Our courses can be tailored to meet the needs of a specific audience, and can be scheduled over consecutive days or spread over weeks. To express your interest in participating in one of our upcoming climate, energy change or disaster solutions short courses, register your details on the Expression of Interest (EoI) forms below and we will contact you when course dates are confirmed:

We also regularly conduct briefings for parliamentarians, policymakers and government departments on a wide range of climate related topics. Our members frequently appear as speakers at industry forums and conferences throughout Australia and internationally.
