A brokerage event, organised by the H2020 Energy National Contact Points, will take place in parallel. It will give participants an opportunity to network and look for partners to form a consortium.
Registrations for the info day and for the brokerage event will be separate and will open this summer. Due to a very high demand, a maximum of two people per organisation can be registered for the info day.
The info day will be webstreamed and recordings will be available after the event.
