The SCCER-SoE Annual Conference 2018 presents insights into our research highlights, puts a strong emphasis on the project posters, and offers many opportunities for personal exchange. At this year’s conference we introduce parallel sessions and two new formats: poster pitches as well as knowledge and technology transfer talks for hydropower and geo-energy stakeholders.



Registration is required and is now open until September 1. Personal and poster registration has to be done separately. Entrance is free.

Call for posters

Academic research partners are expected to present their project on a poster. All posters will be displayed on both conference days.

Formatting instructions:

  • A0 size, vertical / portrait format only
  • If a project is funded by the SCCER-SoE, the authors are required to use this poster template.

The top three posters made by PhD students will be awarded by a committee. All posters will be collected in the SCCER-SoE Science Report 2018.

Presentations on Thursday

On Thursday, the current state of work in the different work packages in the field of hydro-power and geo-energy is given with presentations and poster pitches. Afterwards, three parallel sessions will be dedicated to (i) the knowledge and technology transfer in hydropower, (ii) geo-energy and (iii) innovation and future supply of electricity.

Presentations on Friday

On Friday, we will focus on the highlights of the hydropower and geo-energy research as well as on the pilot and demonstration projects, which characterize the second phase of the SCCER-SoE implementation.
