Germany California Bioenergy Symposium

Complimentary All-Day Conference with Networking

This exclusive knowledge exchange between U.S. and German experts in the bioenergy field is a unique opportunity to hear from high-level speakers and meet with companies from both countries. The full-day symposium focuses on different approaches on both sides of the Atlantic and includes presentations from German and American bioenergy experts. Attendees of the conference will learn about the latest developments in the bioenergy sector and can meet with German companies to discuss potential synergies.

Attendance is complimentary since the program is supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy on the basis of a decision by the German Bundestag. RSVP is required.

The symposium is part of a delegation trip for selected German companies and bioenergy experts who will visit California from June 26-30, 2017. The program aims to strengthen innovation transfer and collaboration between German and American bioenergy stakeholders. The German delegation will meet with local industry leaders, research institutions, and government representatives to exchange ideas, discuss new developments and lay the groundwork for future cooperation.
