Re-Industrialise Study Visit to North Rhine-Westphalia

North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany
28 Oct 2019 - 30 Oct 2019

Joining Forces for a Successful Regional Transition:

Experiences and Lessons Learnt on Fostering Collaboration

Achieving a successful transition of industrial areas and regions into low carbon innovation hotspots requires creative solutions, forward-thinking and new collaborations. By taking on board research, society and industrial representatives, it is expected that new, as well as more sustainable solutions, will be created in the region. But what does successful stakeholder involvement for industrial transformation look like?

We warmly invite you to join the Re-Industrialise Study Visit from Oct 28 – 30, where we will be diving deeper into experiences and lessons learnt on fostering successful collaborations.

This study visit will connect you with experts and practitioners in North Rhine-Westphalia who have actively worked with diverse actors to foster a regional transition – also in the form of Real World Labs. During site visits, workshops, and discussions you’ll be able to exchange ideas with peers and experts on how impactful collaboration can be achieved and how new ideas, that turn your region into a low carbon innovation hotspot, can be fostered!

Further Information can be found here.

The agenda is available here.
