European Energy Research Alliance Conference 2016
Aston Webb Building, University of Birmingham

For the first time since its establishment, EERA is organising a scientific conference. This conference is the occasion for energy researchers active in EERA, that represent more than 175 research organisations active in all fields of research on low-carbon energy, to meet and discover about each other’s’ challenges. The goal is to provide the opportunity for JPs cross-fertilisation, to discuss topics of common interest and input to contributing to the objectives of the SET-Plan and to the EU policy priorities in energy research. The event will also involve industrial stakeholders and policy makers in order to strengthen their collaboration with the research world.

Wednesday 30 November, 9:00am – 17:00pm
