23-24 October, ELAN Event in Santiago, Chile, “Technologies and Business Models to Face the Energy Challenges of the 21st Century”

Chile and the world are undergoing a process of significant and critical energy transformation. Renewable energies bring new technological challenges for all market players and this is generating new opportunities that require comprehensive and interdisciplinary solutions for the efficient use of all available resources. This event offers an attractive space, with unique methodologies, to generate Technology Based Business Opportunities (TBBOs) between Chilean and European companies, for the development of new technologies in order to better face the energy challenges of the 21st century.

The event is organised by Centro de Innovación UC Anacleto Angelini in collaboration with CORFO, SOFOFA, Eurochile, Inria Chile and TECNALIA, and will be coordinated with the Exhibition and Conference of Renewable Energies (ExpoERNC 2017), organised by the Non Conventional Renewable Energy Association of Chile, ACERA. With this partnership between both events, the European companies will have four days in order to identify business opportunities. + info
