The SHARE network has been set up to provide an informal but professional interdisciplinary network of peers who are engaged in bioenergy research. We run workshops and seminars to support knowledge exchange, promote mobility of early career researchers and interdisciplinary collaboration.

The SHARE network is open to all bioenergy PhDs, postdoctoral researchers and research fellows, or those of equivalent professional standing, belonging to formal partners of the Supergen Bioenergy Hub. To check your eligibility, please email Durga Prasad at

The SHARE Network maintain a quarterly newsletter update as well as regularly communicating opportunities to SHARE members. Subscribe below.
