    The combination of rapid urbanization, escalating energy demands, and the urgent necessity to reduce carbon footprints has amplified the priority for cities to implement renewable energy solutions. To build a sustainable and successful urban economy, it is crucial to develop learning and upskilling programmes for recently graduates and experienced professionals in order to provide the necessary skills to participate effectively in the renewable energy transition. By doing so, cities can rely on professionals prepared to address the challenges and opportunities presented by renewable energy adoption. As the educational landscape evolves, learners increasingly seek knowledge that is personalized, flexible, and directly applicable to their needs. In response, Micro Programmes based on Micro Credentials have emerged as a powerful educational tool, capable of delivering specific knowledge efficiently. These bite-sized learning modules offer a unique and tailored approach to education, catering to the demands of modern learners and the dynamic requirements of diverse industries. The rise of Micro-based learning represents a transformative shift in the educational and training sphere. Its ability to accommodate various learning styles and preferences, coupled with its alignment with rapidly changing industries and the ever-evolving job market, marks it as a game-changer in the field of education. Embracing Micro Programmes and Micro Credentials empowers learners to remain relevant and competitive in an ever-changing world. Considering this, RES4CITY project introduce eight Micro Programmes targeting master students, recently graduates, and experienced professional with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) or SSH (Social Science and Humanity) background. The proposed MPs encompass a wide range of area of knowledge and discipline supporting the integration of RES in the urban environment.
