The World Sustainable Energy Days organization is ramping up activities for the next edition of the Young Energy Researchers Conference that will take place on 24-25 March 2021 in Wels/Austria in the context of the World Sustainable Energy Days. The call for papers is open until 12 October 2020-> only 6 weeks left!
Once again we will be covering costs of accommodation, meals, participation and local transportation for up to 60 selected participants.
 Mail we’ve received:
We’ve really appreciated your support in the past in promoting our event. It would be great if we could collaborate again, perhaps along the same lines as last year:  The YEAR-network promotes the call for papers and the event:

  • on its website (with an event page)
  • on social media (LinkedIn group, Twitter)
  • through its internal mailing lists for each member research institute

In exchange, ESV offers:

  • to include the YEAR-network logo as partner on the website of the Young Energy Researchers Conference with link to the YEAR webpage
  • 1 free entrance to the conference
  • A free poster space in the poster presentation area

I hope we can count on your support. The Young Energy Researchers Conference is a great opportunity!
I have attached our promotional flyer. Please let me know if I can provide any further material.

We got insight into vary different topics that are being addressed by these RTOs. Want to know more about what European RTOs are doing against COVID 19? Check out this impressive list of projects against COVID 19 that are being done by EARTO members.
