SWISSTECH in Japan 2021: Targeting BEYOND ZERO Societies
Swiss Solutions Toward Decarbonization
October 25, 18:00-19:00, online
As the world is faced with the pressing challenges of global warming, advanced economies such as Switzerland and Japan are engaging faster than ever with decarbonization and environmental efforts. Both countries have set a similar target of net zero emission by 2050.
Shifting away from fossil energy as well as implementing Direct Air Capture technologies, in addition to cutting emissions, will constitute key factors on the road to achieving the 2050 goal.
International cooperation and exchanges in Research & Development make particularly sense for two innovation power houses such as Switzerland and Japan. Our 2021 SWISSTECH online event will introduce two highly innovative Swiss Startups which operate at the frontier of decarbonization: Climeworks removes carbon out of the atmosphere Synhelion turns it into synthetic fuel for transportation.
Join us to learn more about these Swiss solutions to close the carbon cycle and discover the many advantages of Switzerland as a platform for Research & Development in the cleantech sector.
