4TU.Energy Community Day

Tuesday 16 April 2024

4TU.Energy’s foremost emphasis lies in strengthening the bonds within the community while simultaneously concentrating on research and education. One of the annual activities that serves this purpose is the 4TU. Energy Community Day, which serves as a platform for researchers to forge connections, expand their professional network, and seek inspiration from their peers.

Each year, Energy Community Day forms a specific theme (click here to view version 2023 in retrospect with the after movie).

After a successful Energy Community Day in 2023 themed "Boost Our Collaboration", the Energy Community Day in 2024 will be focused on "Energy Landscape and Funding Opportunities".

Here is the preliminary program and please save your date on 16th April 2024!
