2023
cleantech for europe summit
Brussels, January 25th

The most important event in cleantech and policy is coming back to Brussels in 2023.

The European Union has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to lead the race to net zero. As policymakers enact ambitious decarbonisation targets, EU cleantech innovators are paving the way for a new climate and industrial leadership.To seize this leadership, the EU must learn to scale up its clean technologies and create the conditions for wide adoption and a just transition.
Our new series of events is bridging the gap between the innovation and policy worlds. Each quarter, cleantech CEOs and investors share the stage with leading policymakers to make the most of the decade of action.

Opening Keynote: Cleantech for a new Europe

The last year has reminded us what it means to be European: we stand for peace, democracy and justice.

The dual climate and energy crisis will test those values like never before. All across Europe, citizens are hit with high energy prices and struggling industries. Scaling Europe’s clean technologies offers a way out of these crises, while promising a brighter economic and social future.

How can the EU accelerate the movement to a new economy?
