The EU SUNRISE (“Solar energy for a circular economy”) coordination and support action (CSA https://www.sunriseaction.eu) is preparing a large scale research initiative aiming to provide novel technologies for a sustainable production of fuels and chemicals from sunlight and abundant raw materials such as CO2, O2 and N2. SUNRISE involves three principally different approaches: Electrochemical conversion with renewable power, Direct conversion via integrated artificial photosynthetic systems and Direct conversion via biological and biohybrid systems. Recently SUNRISE and Energy-X (another EU CSA initiative selected by EU) announced the joint cooperation as a major step towards building a carbon neutral EU.
In order to enhance national collaboration and also to include stakeholders (industry, governance, funding agencies) into the discussion concerning sustainable energy/chemicals production in Finland and in Europe, the University of Turku is organizing a national SUNRISE Finland Stakeholder Workshop on Monday, 9th of December in Turku.
Please find here the preliminary programme.
Registration is now open! Participation is free of charge (lunch is not included), however space is limited, we encourage you to make your reservation early.
