Future of Energy Seminar 16.3.2020


The energy infrastructure is changing, and an entirely new technological structure is emerging alongside existing solutions. The New Energy Academy Programme (2015-2020) harnesses scientific methods to resolve complex issues related to the great energy transition. This seminar takes a look at the future of energy from a scientific perspective, learning from the experiences and outcomes from international collaboration projects. You will also learn how to present engaging research results to the general public.

The seminar is aimed at energy researchers in both academia and industry and at all those interested in energy research. Seminar is arranged by New Energy Academy Programme.
