RISETI Travelling Conferences

Research initiative for sustainable energy transitions on islands

The “Travelling Conferences” belong to a series of events funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, in which German experts and early-career researchers in other countries present current research topics. These events are meant to provide platforms for the development of international cooperation.

RLI will host one of the Travelling Conferences on the use of renewable energy for sustainable energy provision on Southeast Asian islands. Together with research and professional partners, we will travel to Bangkok, Singapore, and Jakarta in order to delve into and discuss the need for research and collaborative potential with local research institutions in this area. We have therefore chosen specific institutions, which are already researching this issue in order to identify overlapping interests and points of contact within the dialog. In the long term, we hope to initiate and develop partnerships for joint project development.

Four experts from RLI will travel there as part of the Travelling Conference. They will give expert talks and have discussion panels with local partners from research institutes and companies.
