2009 International Workshop on Environment and Alternative Energy

“GLOBAL COLLABORATION IN ENVIRONMENTAL AND ALTERNATIVE ENERGY STRATEGIES"


 

November 10 - 12, 2009

November 13, 2009 Tours Planned

GE Global Research
Garching, Germany

Near Munich



On 10, 11 & 12 November 2009, the Centro Para Prevenção da Poluição (C3P) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) hosted their 7th annual technical workshop on environment and energy at the GE Global Research – Europe facility in Munich/Garching, Germany.

The workshop provided an excellent forum to showcase innovative and emerging pollution prevention and renewable energy technologies, share lessons learned, and identify new joint opportunities. The concept of collaboration and its inherent benefits was stressed and several desirable interactions occurred between presenters and attendees resulting in numerous desired accomplishments.

Individuals from five countries (United States, Portugal, Germany, France, and United Kingdom) attended, including students and professors from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), the Technical University of Munich (TUM), and the Munich University of Applied Technology (FHM). Forty U.S. and international subject matter experts presented on environmental-related topics, ranging from renewable and alternative energies to climate change response to electronics recycling, among others. The workshop was completed with a November 13, 2009 tour of GE’s gas engine manufacturing plant in Jenbach, Austria.

In conjunction with workshop, C3P and NASA also held the renewal signing ceremony of the 2002 Joint Statement and Terms of Reference to continue through 2011.
