Headline: CO2-WIN conference

The 1st status conference of the BMBF funding measure "CO2 as a sustainable source of carbon  - Pathways to industrial applications - CO2-WIN" will take place on June 8/9, 2021.

We would like to invite you to join the online-event. Get insights about the latest developments of the funded projects on CO2-utilization and learn what we can expect in the short and long term!

The conference language is english, the participation is free of charge.


Registration is, depending on the availability, possible up to the beginning of the conference. You will receive a confirmation of registration immediately after your registration. The log-in data for the conference will be sent to you a few days prior the conference starts.
