About this Event

This year the Embassy of Canada to Switzerland organizes a virtual tour of Canada’s Negative Emission Technologies & CCUS on 18-20 May 2021. We would be delighted if you could join us as an active participant.

The virtual tour showcases the Canadian Ecosystem to strategic partners, buyers and investors from Europe, coordinated with Canadian Embassies across the region. We have secured the participation of several world-class keynotes, please see program below.

On each of the days we will dedicate 2 hours to dive into 3 topics that will be crucial to getting to Net Zero by 2050: Capture, Storage, and Utilization (Conversion) of CO2. Canada has a long historic expertise in this topic, and we will have keynotes, pitches and a roundtable discussion with Canadian and European leaders in these technologies. Have a look at the 2020 Carbontech Report to get an overview of the Canadian Ecosystem.

Networking: Please opt into sharing some basic information, and we will make individual introductions for private B2B conversations with the Canadian Participants after the conference.

We expect to have an audience of 100 participants from Germany, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Belgium, The Netherlands, Latvia, Croatia, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria and Switzerland.
