On June 21st, 2017 the joint TU/e-DIFFER Center for Computational Energy Research (CCER) will be officially opened. The CCER aims to explore pathways to future energy systems via computational methods. The ambition is to complement experimental research in unlocking scalable energy solutions for mid-century and beyond.

We cordially invite you to celebrate the launch of this exciting TU/e-DIFFER initiative with us and we are looking forward to see you. Please feel free to forward this invitation to any people you think may be interested in attending this event.


Registration for the CCER opening event has closed.
