Who can submit?
Experienced speakers/experts from knowledge institutes (universities/TO2/research institutes), industry, government and NGO’s.
For which thematic parallel sessions can abstracts be submitted?
The parallel sessions are aligned to the three chapters of the ECCM report (in Dutch, or download the English summary):
• System integration of electrolysis
• Innovative electrochemistry and materials
• ECCM: Education, knowledge exchange, governance
What are the selection criteria?
• Fit with the theme of the parallel session.
• Quality of the technological, scientific or socio-economic approach.
• Balance between contributions from universities/TO2/research institutes, industry, government and NGOs.
The advisory committee will carefully consider all submitted abstracts following the selection criteria. By the end of April 2020 all applicants shall receive information on the outcome of the selection process.
During the annual ECCM Programme Day, running programmes initiated or adopted by the ECCM committee come together on the same venue in The Hague, preceding the annual ECCM Conference. Updates on the programme of this day will be published on this page. The ECCM Programme Day is by invitation only. Participants are invited via the research programmes involved.
The scope of the conference is schematically depicted in the figure below. More information on the scope is published here. During the conference the state of the art in science and technology will be shared in international key notes from academia and industry. Dutch scientists and industry representatives will contribute to an appealing parallel programme related to the theme of the conference. During the conference national R&D initiatives related to the ECCM theme will be announced.
The Advisory Committee for Electrochemical Conversion & Materials (ECCM) advises the Dutch government to make the transition to a CO2 neutral industry based on intermittent sustainable energy generation, storage and conversion. The committee was established by the top sectors HTSM, Energy and Chemistry, with support from NWO and TNO and in collaboration with the Ministries of Economic Affairs & Climate Policy (EZK), the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) and the Dutch National Research Agenda (NWA).
ECCM is the cross-sectoral theme to achieve the above-mentioned transition objective. The committee coordinates efforts in the field of ECCM at national level, by initiating new cooperation initiatives and by adopting initiatives that fit within the scope of the advisory report that the committee has published. From a national perspective, the committee advises the government on what efforts are needed to collaborate throughout the innovation chain. In addition, the committee is busy building an ECCM community of knowledge institutions, companies, governments and NGOs. To this end, the committee organizes conferences in the field of ECCM and an annual graduate school. More information: www.co2neutraalin2050.nl.
