We have extended the Education and Training classification of the Calendar of Technical Events to include employment opportunities – two such opportunities are advertised today.

New Classification

This extended Technical Event classification – “Education, Training and Employment Opportunities” – does not deal with “Technical Events” in the general sense this Calendar which deals primarily with Technical Meeting.

However the need for companies, universities and other institutes, operating in the fields of combustion and the environment, to advertise their courses, training, research fellowships and other technical employment opportunities, is of interest to IFRF Member organisations and of course to Individual Members.

Consequently the IFRF have added this classification to the Calendar of Technical Events. Such education, training and employment opportunities are presented in the Calendar listed chronologically against the date of events such as courses, or against the deadline of submission of applications.  Opportunities published today are:
