The webinar is organized by the Swedish Energy Agency as a part of the Swedish involvement in one of the technology collaboration programmes (TCP) affiliated to the International Energy Agency, i.e., Industrial Energy-Related Technologies and Systems (IETS TCP).  A new international collaboration in industrial circular economy is now starting within the IETS TCP.

More information about the webinar and the new international collaboration can be found in the previously distributed Save the Date.

About the IETS TCP

The IETS TCP is part of a network of autonomous collaborative partnerships focused on a wide range of energy technologies known as Technology Collaboration Programmes or TCPs. The International Energy Agency (IEA) created the Technology Collaboration Programmes as a network of independent collaborations that enable governments and industries from around the world to lead programmes and projects on a wide range of energy technologies and related issues.
