Registration open for Eureka 2017

GERMANY: Registration is now open for Eureka 2017, the international conference aimed at ensuring a comfortable environment for future generations.

With its subtitle of Sustainable technologies for a better life, this high-level conference is organised by EPEE, the European association representing the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump industry, and the ventilation group EVIA.

As with the first such conference last year, Generation Z (the technological generation, born between 1995 and 2009) will be actively involved in discussions during Eureka 2017. It will explore the best way for the HVACR sector to answer to future consumers’ demands and make solutions fit for the future.

The conference brings together NGOs, academia, decision-makers, and industry professionals across the HVACR industry.

Eureka 2017 runs from Monday 11 December to Tuesday 12 December at the Hertie School of Governance, Berlin.
