The European LPG Association, AEGPL, is introducing the LPG Young Talent Grants. 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 Grants will have its first edition in 2018 and are open to all students that fit the criteria specified below.

 

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and Leasys Spain, car renting company owned by FCA Bank Group, have signed an agreement to deliver a fleet of 1,000 low emissions Autogas vehicles to Uber and Cabify, the two main ridesharing network companies with VCT licences (authorisation for a type of car rental according to which drivers can not pick up a client without an appointment, nor use the lanes for taxi drivers).


The LPG Young Talent Grants call for submissions into two different categories:

- Technical & research 
- Business development 

 

We are looking for Bachelor, Master or PHD students 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. 

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 grants will be divided in two categories: Technical & research and Business development. The winner of each category will receive €1500
  • They will be invited to travel to Brussels for a networking dinner on the 28th of November
  • Additionally, the next day, they will have the opportunity to present their project in front of the AEGPL General Assembly, which gathers all major players from the LPG industry. 

The Deadline for submissions is the 25th October. 
Shortlisted candidates will be contacted the first week of November.
