The Phronesis Academy
In December 2010 Gerindtec, in cooperation with the German government entered into an MOU, to establish a 3 years course in Solar Thermal Education in India.
The training center provided in-depth training on Solar Thermal Technologies, to 3 target groups; (viz.) Decision makers, planners and Installers of solar thermal technologies.
An MoU was signed with the German Government Department Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit, GIZ. Currently we establish a state of the art training centre under the name “The Phronesis Academy”, an Internationally recognized hands-on training centre for solar thermal technologies and sustainable water treatment solutions.
Initially trainers" from international industries established a training program on already existing know how used by said industries for many years. This high quality educational program conducted a 3 years “Train the Trainer” program. This initiative helped in Phase I to make solar thermal technology known to a larger group of people to create a wider knowledge of solar based technologies across the country. In Phase II a training program was established to deal with the subject of saving irrigational water, and a capacity building program on latest agriculture developments was conducted. Phase III will consist of the establishment of laboratories and a research centre for Cryopreservation with its focus on advanced educational program.
