About the Event

With the Green Deal and the Climate Law, the European Union (EU) has  strongly engaged to take the global lead in mitigating climate change. To serve this effort, numerous initiatives and funding opportunities are  arising to support R&I towards a more sustainable and fossil-free  industry.

SUNERGY and CO2 Value Europe are co-organising a  brokerage virtual event to present and discuss EU funding opportunities  related to Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) and fossil free fuels,  chemicals and materials.

The event will take place on Thursday, the 29th of April 2021 from 1pm to 4:15pm (CET) and will include  presentations of the new Horizon Europe program as well as the  Innovation Fund. Moreover, participants will be given the opportunity to  pitch their ideas and to participate in B2B and round-table discussions  during the last hour of the event.

For more information, see agenda below.

About the organisers:

SUNERGY  is a pan-European research and innovation platform that gathers  science, industry and other key players to work towards the conversion  and storage of renewable energy into fossil-free fuels and chemicals to  reach a climate neutral Europe.

CO2 Value Europe is a  non-profit organization representing the Carbon Capture and Utilisation  (CCU) community in Europe. Its mission is to promote the development of  sustainable industrial solutions that convert CO2 into valuable products  (materials, fuels or chemicals) to mitigate climate change and move  away from fossil resources.
