The Environmental & Energy Management Research Unit (EEMRU) is part of the School of Chemical Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). The EEMRU activities address both education and research.
To fulfill its educational role, as part of the School of Chemical Engineering undergraduate curriculum, the EEMRU carries out undergraduate study courses, comprising theoretical lectures and laboratory and practical training. These courses focus on production management and energy management, covering diverse subjects, such as production management, industrial economics, energy analysis of industrial systems, energy transfer, etc.
The EEMRU also develops, in collaboration with other educational institutions, postgraduate courses, focusing on subjects in environmental impacts and management. Both undergraduate and postgraduate courses are supported through tailor-made web material (e-learning).
As an independent research unit, the EEMRU carries out research on environmental issues of energy use and environmental resources management, as well as development of relevant innovative solutions. A number of Phd candidates participate in and are supported by the EEMRU, which is also staffed by permanent researchers to carry out research and innovation projects on three main areas of interest:
In terms of trans-national cooperation, the Unit has successfully coordinated or participated in a considerable number of projects in collaboration with European and Mediterranean Partner Countries’ institutions.
