Renewable hydrogen and cooperation opportunities between the EU and other world regions (19.10.2022, 15:00-17:30, virtual Meeting)
Topic: Renewable hydrogen production in Africa and other world regions for local and export markets could help reduce the costs of production through scaling up and learning-by-doing effects. As part of REPowerEU, the EU hydrogen accelerator aims at increasing the production of renewable hydrogen both in the EU and worldwide to replace imported Russian gas.
The objective of this workshop is to discuss the status of the development of renewable hydrogen in Africa and other world regions, specifically for exports towards the EU, and the challenges and opportunities ahead. It will also address building blocks of cooperation strategies between EU Member States and other world regions for hydrogen production, export and domestic use.
Young Women and Green Skills (20.09.2022, 15:00-17:00, virtual meeting)
Topic: The shortage of skilled workers is one of the greatest challenges for the energy transition. There is a greater need for action to develop young women as qualified workforce in the energy sector. For this, they need new career paths.
The aim of the workshop is to discuss ways to increase the involvement of young women in the field of renewable energy. We want to learn from the experiences of organisations in Austria and abroad.
