The EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) has opened its call for applications for hosting a session during the EUSEW Policy Conference to be held between June 5-7 in Brussels. EU Sustainable Energy Week is a popular European movement launched by the European Commission in 2005 and the Policy Conference is its most important event, dedicated to sustainable energy policy issues. Sessions organised by the European Commission and energy stakeholders debate new policy developments, best practices and sustainable energy ideas.
If your work supports an economy built on clean, secure, efficient energy, the EU Sustainable Energy Week is an opportunity for you to meet stakeholders promoting energy efficiency and renewable energies, learn about successful policies and inspire innovation to meet the EU’s energy and climate goals. If you have a great proposal for a compelling session that fits the overall theme of ‘Leading the Energy Transition’, do not miss out the opportunity to share your knowledge and gain exposure for your organisation and ideas. Deadline for applications is February 23, 2018.
Submit your proposal if you are:
Representatives of EU institutions, including inter-institutional bodies
Stakeholders which fulfil the following criteria:
Consumer associations/citizens’ groups Professional event organisers or businesses aiming to promote specific products or services are not eligible.
Here is the Application form and guidelines
Sessions will take place between June 5 – 7, 2018. Applicants will be invited to choose from one of the following formats: Panel discussion, Roundtable, Seminar or World Café (a conversation-based process for generating new insights to a chosen theme for approximately 20 minutes in a group of four or five participants; at the end of each discussion, individuals can switch to a new group and discuss a new question; the session closes with a plenary roundup of insights.).

Concept, focus and follow-up 2. Relevance of the topic (content) 3. Capacity to mobilise interest (promotion) 4. Novelty, news, innovation 5. Management (level of preparation).

Apart from applying for the Conference sessions, you can also nominate or apply for The EU Sustainable Energy Awards which recognise outstanding innovations in energy efficiency and renewables. Anyone in the EU can submit a recent project – from a local initiative to an industry-wide programme that could help citizens, industry and the public sector work towards clean, secure and efficient energy.
Awards are available for one or more of these categories: Consumers, Public Sector, Businesses, Young Energy Leaders, Citizens’ Award. You can submit an application in the first four categories. The Citizens’ Award, however, will be granted via an online vote allowing the general public to reward their favourite project among the finalists of the four other categories.
