EnergyVille’s Living Lab Business Day



11:30 - 17:30

Thor Park, Genk, Belgium

During the Living Lab Business Day we open up the doors to our living lab for technology, energy and innovation – our Open Thor Living Lab.

We would like to put the spotlight on the various demonstrators and infrastructure works that are in the starting blocks to accelerate innovation in collaboration with companies, governments and knowledge partners. And we share, together with our business partners, the results of innovative research on digitization of the energy transition, sustainable or circular construction and neighborhood development.

This way we hope to exchange valuable insights about current and future developments in the energy transition on 15 September!
