CRUSUS An Educational, Research and Business Consulting Network oriented to Sustainability University of Pardubice (UPCE) The University of Pardubice, mainly through the efforts of three faculties (Faculty  of Economics and Administration, Faculty of Chemical Technology and Jan  Perner Transport Engineering Faculty) have been showing interest on research  in sustainable development (SD), including a concern on the sustainable use of  energy. There is an institutional interest in the promotion of SD in the academic  sphere which goes beyond the research agenda and intends to be visible in the  creation of new programmes focused on SD issues. One of these intentions  attempts to meet the growing demand for highly skilled labour force in the field of  planning, research and development of renewable energy technologies.  More information about UPCE can be obtained at:   http://www.upce.cz Our main contact person at UPCE is also the director of CRUSUS:  Eng.
