Dear colleagues,

We are honoured to invite you to the Euro-CASE Annual Conference 2020 to be held on 8th June in the capital of Croatia, charming City of Zagreb, that will welcome you with its rich history, modern look and unique hospitality.

The mission of Euro-CASE is to pursue, encourage and maintain excellence in the fields of engineering, applied sciences and technology, and promote their science, art, and practice for the benefit of the citizens of Europe. The Croatian Academy of Engineering (HATZ) as a member of the Euro-CASE organizes the Annual Conference 2020 “Dealing with Challenges of the European Energy Transition”.

Sustainable generation and use of energy are one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. Providing a secure supply of clean, competitive, and affordable energy for all raises complex technical, economic, social, and political issues that must be addressed to ensure sustainable growth and development. Euro-CASE Annual meeting 2020 will address the above energy transition-related issue and challenges. Euro-CASE is dedicated to providing evidence-based policy advice with a clear European dimension.

Please find attached the preliminary program of the Euro-CASE 2020 Conference.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Annual Conference in Zagreb. Save the date, 8 June 2020!

With best wishes for the Holiday season and the coming year.
