Third evaluation meeting - June 2024

We are looking forward to welcoming members of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy and international experts for EDGE third evaluation meeting on 24 and 25 June 2024. We will present EDGE newest advancements and show progress made since the second evaluation meeting of June 2023, taking into account all comments and recommendations made. This will be a great opportunity to reflect on the first three years of the EDGE consortium.



Next consortium meetings - August 2024

The EDGE consortium meets twice a year. Our next consortium meeting will be held in-person in Lucerne on 22 and 23 August 2024. Consortium meetings are always very nice ways to exchange ideas and reflect on progress made. Our last in-person consortium meeting was held a day after the biennial conference in Bern on 23 August 2023.
