Thursday 27 September 2018, 9:00–13:00

Venue: Turku-Southwest Finland European Office
Address:  Avenue Palmerston 26, B-1000 Brussels, Belgium

The EU Horizon 2020 project EUFORIE (European Futures for Energy Efficiency) invites participants in a half-day roundtable discussion in Brussels under a title: "From Physics to Policy: Overcoming Misperceptions in Energy Policy".

The agenda includes inspiring and slightly provocative presentations based on results from the EUFORIE project, which are available as policy briefs in the EUFORIE website before the roundtable. The roundtable participants are expected to comment the results from their own perspectives in the light of future energy policy in the EU and the Member States.

Participants from policy/administration, academia, industry, and citizens/NGOs are expected – there is room for approximately 20 participants. Please register:
