The New Frontiers of Energy

On June 15, 2023, at the CNR Research Area in Padova, the event “The New Frontiers of Energy”, will take place as part of the open doors initiatives promoted by the National Research Council on the occasion of its centennial anniversary (1923-2023).

The event will showcase research on new forms of energy, energy efficiency, and sustainability for the future of the planet, highlighting the significant and diverse contributions of the National Research Council in these research fields.
The day will be divided into two distinct parts. In the first part, a conference will present research on nuclear fusion and energy transition in the Italian and European contexts. In the second part, the “Sustainable Energy Avenue” will unfold, offering a path through the Padova Research Area that will be open to the public. Researchers will explain their initiatives and the topics they work on for a sustainable future.
