Please join us for the Erasmus Energy Forum 2017, hosted by the Erasmus Centre for Future Energy Business, and save the dates in your calendar:
If the consensus from the 2016 event learned that policies and standards are needed to help innovation grow, then in 2017 we’ll be debating challenges and opportunities open to energy industry players at this stage in the transition to sustainable energy.
Which sectors are best placed to take advantage? And where are the pitfalls? The Erasmus Energy Forum will extend your knowledge of new technologies, and reveal how major players in the energy industry are redefining and redrawing their business strategies.
“As Professor of Next Generation Information Systems, I make people think about how to accelerate to zero carbon energy using data information systems. The energy forum, which will be held on 28 and 29 June in Rotterdam, gives us access to the perspectives of successful business leaders, renowned academics, and innovative regulators. During this academic year I’m a visiting professor at the University of California at Berkeley. Our research has received lots of attention in the Bay Area (Silicon Valley) and throughout the USA. This enables us to bring overseas insights from the USA to the Erasmus Energy Forum 2017 and discuss international best practices and lessons learned. We’ll have a look at the developments in the USA, since it is our partner country for 2017. Join me at the Erasmus Energy Forum and explore the paths to zero carbon energy.”
Professor Wolf Ketter of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM)
Through executive speakers, in-depth workshops and panels of experts, we will facilitate constructive debate, and create a forum to exchange ideas with your peers. We will dig deeper into five key paths during our two-day programme.
We’ll be presenting awards during the Forum – an award for innovative sustainable business concepts and activities as well as a science research award, an opportunity for industry-wide recognition. More information on how to enter will be on this website soon. You can read about the 2016 winners here.
Essential changes in the energy market can be achieved only with innovation and new approaches, which is why we believe that the Forum provides a learning opportunity for everyone. It brings stakeholders together and facilitates collaborations which lead to the implementation of new thinking and technologies, as well bringing together those at the forefront of innovative research, allowing them to exchange best practices and to develop innovative business models that benefit all participants. The Forum also provides a fantastic opportunity for networking for individuals in businesses, innovative start-ups, policy-making and academia.
There are opportunities to participate as sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, or delegates.
