11-13 June: EU Sustainable Energy Week

If your project is linked to the green energy transition, consider how you can participate in Europe's leading event for the green energy transition. Taking place in Brussels in hybrid format, the EUSEW offers plenty of opportunities for active participation:

Host a policy session, compete for the EUSEW Awards, join the Energy Fair, or why not organise a local Sustainable Energy Day in the period March-June.

Other upcoming events in 2024

Some key events happening later in 2024 are yet to be announced/opened and are worthwhile keeping track of. For example, the European Week of Regions and Cities, the  Regiostars Awards, the  European Mobility Week and the Interreg Project Slam organised by Interact. 

Beyond Europe, global events such as the Climate COP 29 might be on your radar for your digital communication. 

Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg. We encourage you to explore all the options and plan your presence where it provides the most value for you and your project. 

Tip: If you are planning to participate actively in European events with your North Sea project, make sure to tag us on social media. We will happily help spread the word. 

See you around Europe!
