The FSR welcomes the Alumni community in Florence

As our 20th Anniversary approaches, the Florence School of Regulation would like to celebrate its Alumni and offer them additional networking and learning opportunities.

The first FSR Alumni Day will take place in Florence and gather participants from all our courses, course directors, instructors, and coordinators.

A special event to meet, interact and learn something new

Since its establishment in 2004, the School has been training more than 10.000 participants. In 2014, the FSR launched its first online course and since then, more than 60 online courses have been welcoming energy professionals and academics from worldwide.
