Participation is free of charge.

Our Goal within the NEFI Technology Talks

The worldwide innovation landscape offers an impeccable basis for developing novel solutions in reaching the targeted climate goals. Since numerous research projects for deploying brand new green technologies are well underway, we want to create the opportunity to aim for the next step: Within the NEFI Technology Talks national and international industrial endeavours in the context of selected decarbonisation topics will be brought together, synthesing findings and results and forming synergies to exploit and drive development further.

Within our initial NEFI Technology Talk, industrial flexibility acts as the first key solution for decarbonising the industrial sector in Europe. Here, we form a collaboration with the IEA’s technology collaboration programme IETS to bring international projects and Austrian NEFI projects to the table of discussion.
