Periscope Forum 2021

Hydrogen and offshore energy are key elements in achieving the climate goals of net zero emissions by 2050. While governments and industry commit to these goals, the needed highly innovative approaches in the energy supply and value chains often come from SMEs. Experience however has shown that fully integrating these SMEs and leveraging their innovation potential is difficult and requires attention.

The Periscope Network invites you to join us and other international stakeholders to discuss the transition of the North Sea Region from a traditionally strong oil and gas sector to a leading renewable energy hub. The interregional dimension poses some challenges, but most of all opportunities for the region and its SMEs. 

Let us talk you through the challenges and opportunities during the Periscope Forum. Discussions will take place from different perspectives by direct stakeholders with the aim to contribute to the future actions and policies to exploit the opportunities at regional level and enable SMEs to drive the innovation.
