The 11th annual SET-Plan conference 2018

This year’s SET-Plan Conference will take place in Vienna, Austria on 20-21 November. The discussion will be on progress towards the SET-Plan priorities, following the finalisation of the relevant Implementation Plans and aims to identify how research and innovation efforts, at European and national level, contribute to the EU’s energy transition. It will highlight the importance of making synergies and developing partnerships among public and private actors to fund and implement R&I activities that can create a real impact. The conference will offer a versatile framework that includes plenary sessions and relevant side events to examine and discuss different views for a successful energy transition.

Participants are welcome to join interesting on-site excursions on Monday 19 November to better get to know the city of Vienna and some of its energy-related projects. Participants are also invited to an evening reception by the Mayor of Vienna on Tuesday 20 November.


The conference, under the auspices of the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, is co-organised by the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology on behalf of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology, the Austrian Federal Ministry of Sustainable and Tourism and the European Commission.
