The NOVA Green Lab team members of the Cohort 2023-2024 are composed of BSc, MSc, and PhD students selected from the group of applicants who answered our open call issued in April 2023.

Every year, the NOVA Green Lab welcomes a pre-selected group of students who has the chance of being introduced to the fascinating transdisciplinary world of conducting research in environmental, climate, and energy law. The membership is annual. During the academic year of 2023-2024, students actively contribute to the academic debate of the research areas of our knowledge center as individuals and as part of an academic community, using the NOVA Green Lab as a platform to disseminate their work. Also, members are expected to actively contribute to one or more of the organization’s programs, which includes contributing to our outreach dissemination plan, organization of events, editorial work, research, and publication at the national, transnational, and international levels.
