About the Symposium
A symposium is an educational day full of lectures and cases provided by interesting companies, this time all related to the theme of "Energize the Future". Participation includes a goodiebag, free lunch at the company fair and a closing drink with free beverages!
University of Twente, Waaier 1, Enschede
12th of December 2023
9:00 - 16:00
These are our speakers for today!
This will be the program for the Symposium!
The day will start with an introduction on the current state of affairs regarding the energy transition, after which several companies will present their innovations that will help solve this global problem. In a case provided by a company, you are challenged to work on a solution yourself! You can either do the case, or visit two other interesting lectures. We will close the day off with a societal and political point of view on the matter, with of course a closing drink at the end of the day. Note that this program is still subject to change!
Get some coffee or tea and find a seat in the Waaier hall.
