Invitation to the Final CI-NERGY Outreach Event

After seven successful training modules and outreach activities, the EU Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions CI-NERGY Initial Training Network and its partners are pleased to announce the eighth and final outreach event, workshops and conference taking place in Geneva, Switzerland, 27 and 28 September, 2017



The “CI-NERGY, Smart cities with sustainable energy systems” Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) invite you to a scientific workshops and final networking event on: City case studies applications and results

Application of results to case studies: Urban energy system optimisation, smart city network operation and fault detection, model validation, urban energy strategic planning


CI-NERGY: sustainable urban energy planning in focus

The EU project CI NERGY explored sustainable urban energy concepts. As part of CI NERGGY developing innovative planning tools eleven PhD students and three postdocs was promoted worldwide in the past three years. In one of AIT organized final event on February 24 at the TU Vienna the young researchers now presented the results of their work. At the same time the event professional public provided the opportunity to learn about the latest findings and discuss research needs for the future.
