This three-day symposium was aimed at fostering industrial and research collaborations between the United States and Europe in the field of fossil-free energies. The focus of the symposium was to connect young researchers (PhD candidates and Post Docs) and engineers from each side of the Atlantic to develop long-term exchanges. The symposium also aimed at gathering researchers from different domains (solar, wind, geothermal, biofuels, and nuclear) to discuss transversal issues linked with the development of sustainable energy sources. The agenda allowed participants to discuss key issues in their field as well as address some general issues related to energies including technical issues such as the storage of energy or the production of a smart energy grid and societal issues, including the education of a new workforce and the environmental impact of these new energy productions. The public policies, regulations, and funding in the energy sector in the U.S. and in Europe were also discussed. The symposium included group plenary sessions, parallel sessions focusing on specific content areas, poster sessions, and a panel discussion.
