Energy – Building – Environment

On November 21 and 22, 2019 the University of Applied Sciences Burgenland will host the international congress e-nova at Campus Pinkafeld.

This year you have the opportunity to present your contribution in one of the three parallel, topic-specific lecture blocks (Energy, Buildings and Environment) and to discuss it with international experts during the conference.

Conceived as an international scientific conference, e·nova is aimed at the scientific community as well as professionally oriented experts. Contributions from both groups in the field of applied research and development provide an overview of the state of scientific development as well as the possibilities and the status of professional and market-oriented implementation.
