Energy Research Talks Disentis 2022

from the 26nd to the 28th of January 2022

The "Energy Research Talks Disentis" are hold on a yearly basis and enable an international and interdisciplinary exchange between researcher on various energy subjects, thus making a valuable contribution to the energy transition. However, the target group of the events does not only consist of researchers and scientists. A broad audience interested in energy issues including private people and companies attends the conference.

The seventh Disentis Energy Research Talks will take place from 26 to 28 January 2022 at the Benedictine Monastery in Disentis. in addition to on-site participation, the presentations will also be streamed online.
