Rotunda, Vienna International Centre, Austria
Opening Ceremony of the ICEF-UNIDO Exhibition on Innovative Low Carbon Technology Solutions
We are pleased to invite you to the opening ceremony of the ICEF Top 10 Innovations exhibition on Tackling Climate Change through Technological Innovation organized by the Innovation for Cool Earth Forum (ICEF) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
The opening ceremony will take place on 25 February 2019 from 12:15 to 13:15 (CET) at the Rotunda of the Vienna International Centre and will be followed by a reception. Guest speakers will include Ambassador Mitsuru Kitano (Permanent Mission of Japan), Philippe Scholtès (UNIDO), Nobutaka Takeo (NEDO) and Nebojsa Nakicenovic (IIASA). The week-long exhibition (25 February - 1 March) presents notable innovations for energy and climate change mitigation. It also celebrates the longstanding partnership between Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) and UNIDO.
Climate change affects ecosystems and people on a global scale. Tackling the climate challenge requires industries and institutions – both public and private – to work together and promote innovative mitigation and adaptation solutions and technologies that foster climate-resilient societies and green growth.
UNIDO works to share knowledge, build capacities and foster partnerships to facilitate access to clean energy technologies and deliver prosperity in a climate-friendly manner. Through policy advice and the introduction of technologies, UNIDO promotes cleaner production and industrial energy efficiency, helping businesses leapfrog to sustainable industrial cycles.
For security reasons, all attendees are kindly requested to RSVP by Thursday, 21 February, 13:00 by returning the filled out excel sheet to TechExhibit@unido.org.
