The panel discussions

The objective of the panel sessions is to contribute to wider discussions in industry, research and policy circles regarding of what can or should be done in the short- to mid-term future regarding technological innovations. The panel sessions will be facilitated by an expert in the theme under discussion. They will be organized around the examples of Processes4Planet projects and SPIRE projects. Specifically, each panel will have representatives of at least 4 different projects. Each project/representative will present their project, followed by a discussion among the panelists with possibility of questions from the audience. The panels will include at least 1 SPIRE project per panel with the objective of having mature projects offering insight on innovation roads (technological, economical feasibilities) that can guide P4P projects.

The Poster Session

The project representative will stand near the roll-up and provide information to any interested participant, thus enabling awareness of the project, networking and potential cooperation opportunities. Priority will be given to Processes4Planet and SPIRE projects. Frequently Asked Questions
