Future Energies 2019 was held in Kiel on 03 Dec 2019 and MARIE was there as part of this important initiative.

The event “Science Match Future Energies” addresses the RRI dimension of Open Access in a unique format. The principle concept of the day is that 100 outstanding researchers from the region present a 3-min pitch on the newest insights from science and innovation related to energy applications. 

The audience was made up of 1000 key players from business, politics, society and top junior energy players. Knowledge and findings in the field of future energy, mobility and environment were shared actively in a broad spectrum of topics. Networking opportunities were facilitated at the exhibition area, while politicians from different ministries also used the platform to share their vision of development.

The MARIE project was present as a network partner and exhibitor in the exhibition area. The local project partners of MARIE from Schleswig-Holstein used the opportunity to increase awareness about RRI in principle, but also share ideas how to improve the concept further in the future. 

The summary of the event in available on the official Future Energies website (in German).
