The Combustion Institute has recently approved four programs for the 2023 CI Summer School initiative. Based on a strict review of submitted proposals, comprehensive programs were approved for Princeton University (United States), University of California, Irvine (United States), Joinville (Brazil), and Tsinghua University (China). The CI Summer Schools initiative provides interested parties, mainly graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, the opportunity to receive an intensive educational experience. Specific dates and further details about the 2023 summer schools will be posted on the events page of the CI website.

The CI Summer Schools initiative was established to promote scientific education that corresponds with the combustion-related needs of society. Student participants meet world-leading scientists and work to build their own international network. The Combustion Institute, in cooperation with host organizations around the world, assemble summer school programs to harmonize and promote the global growth of combustion science and technologies. The Combustion Institute would like to thank the CI-SS Committee, chaired by Dr. Osamu Fujita, for its hard work in selecting from all the submitted proposals.

Proposals for 2024 summer school programs are due by 30 May 2023. The Combustion Institute invites universities, sections, and other qualified organizations to submit their proposals in accordance with the defined policies. The proven success of the CI Summer Schools initiative continues to foster the next generation of combustion scientists.
