IECO Days 2021

IECO hosted its annual virtual Scientific and Innovation event on Eco-Industrial Development Topics during 5th and 6th of October with researchers from the IECO Partner Universities as well as with IECO’s strategic partners and supporters. We want to thank to all the presenters, participants and our special guests who joined us at the event!

On October 5th, we hosted our Innovation Day for which we will had two parallel sessions: a session focused on Start-Ups and a session focused on Green Hydrogen. On October 6th, we hosted our Science Day. This day, we shared the most recent news about the activities of IECO in a general session, followed by five parallel sessions in the Topics of IECO. Find out all details about both days in our Program below!
