What to Expect
A wide range of sessions means you can choose the topics and formats that interest you most. Pursue your area or expertise or widen your horizons. Our agenda will cover all six of our industrial sectors.
Welcome to the 2020s: The Time to Lead
The 2020s brings the threat of chaos. Can Europe lead the revolution and transform its industries? Will it demonstrate that halving emissions while fostering prosperity is possible? This year’s European Forum agenda is developing around themes to prepare you for the 2020s:
Halving our emissions requires deep cuts in the carbon intensity of our industries. Where are the low-hanging fruit and longer shots?
In every sector, circularity offers new opportunities. What is the potential scope and scale? Can we stop the make, use and dispose model?
Inspired by nature
More than ever, we’re turning to natural solutions to fight the climate crisis. Can we leverage soil, trees and biodiversity to create a climate-positive path?
Digital for Good
Edge connectivity, AI and digitization enable decentralization and optimization. But data demands energy. What role should digitization play in the 2020s?
Resilience and Urbanization
The climate crisis is pushing us toward adaptation. Cities face the brunt of the risk and depend on innovation for survival.
Financing the Transition
How will financing models and players evolve in the 2020s to scale innovation faster and achieve the transition we’re all waiting for?

RegistrationCleantech Tour of Luxembourg
For the 12th year running, Cleantech Forum Europe will offer a pre-Forum opportunity to see some of the cleantech sights of our host city/area. Two alternative visits are offered:
Option 1: Belval: From Sunset of the Steel Industry to City of Sciences
Until 1997, when the last blast furnaces were closed down, Belval was the heart of Luxembourg’s thriving steel industry. Over the past few years, the abandoned brownfield site has been turned into a bustling neighbourhood with office buildings, shops, restaurants and housing. Named the City of Sciences, Belval also hosts the University of Luxembourg, the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) and the successful incubator Technoport.
The study visit will give you an insight into the urbanisation plans and architectural solutions that combine Belval’s industrial past with all the requirements of a modern eco-district. International engineering company, Paul Wurth, will explore the production of sustainable steel and renowned research institute LIST will present its activities in the field of smart cities.
Option 2: Kirchberg: Sustainability Drives a Leading Business District
Kirchberg is one of Luxembourg’s main business districts and home to several European institutions. Originally dominated by large business buildings, the area is now being transformed into a sustainable, welcoming neighbourhood where people live, work, shop and relax. The City of Luxembourg is reviewing the ratio between housing and offices, and the current number of around 6,000 inhabitants is eventually expected to grow to 25,000.
The study visit will introduce you to the plans and concepts for the area’s sustainable development, showcase several buildings that are being built according to cradle-to-cradle principles and highlight the recent massive investments into innovative public transport solutions.
You can reserve your place through the registration form.
(Places will be confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis via the registration system, so we recommend registering early if you want to join!)
Executive Summit - Financing Sustainable Innovation in the 2020s (by invitation only)
Globally, venture capital is seen as one of the main levers supporting innovative companies. However, there are areas where VC has shown weakness, especially when capital expenditures are high. As we enter a new decade of opportunities, we must take stock of new financing models and what they can bring to our space.
In this session, innovation financiers of all types – venture capitalists, project financiers, corporations, family funds, impact investors, accelerators, universities and governments discuss how different financing models can work together to accelerate the rise of sustainable technology.
