Conference "Cities as Germ Cells of the Energy Transition in Europe"
Date: 22 May 2019
Organizer: National Contact Point Energy
Cities and municipalities are the cornerstones of the energy transition. The realization of European energy and climate goals depends on the development of municipal potentials. Therefore, it is the stated goal at European level to raise this potential. With its Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020, the European Commission is actively promoting innovative solutions for implementing the energy transition.
In brief keynote speeches, representatives of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the European Commission will give an insight into the European energy strategy and funding opportunities under Horizon 2020 with a view to the successor programme under the working title Horizon Europe. Experienced applicants from the municipal sector report on their experiences with EU projects.
As part of an interactive panel discussion, you can address your questions directly to expert representatives from politics, science and industry and discuss successful European project funding with successful applicants. Let us convince you of the advantages of promoting Horizon 2020 in the municipal sector and visit us at the Berlin Energy Days.
