Invited guests included partners from research and local industry as well as from government, among which eseia members Energieagentur Steiermark Theresa Schwarz, Green Tech Styria Bernhard Puttinger, and the eseia Director Brigitte Hasewend. They all came to the upper Styrian town of Kapfenberg to listen to the keynote speech by climate expert Prof. Steininger from eseia member KFUG which took people right to the core of the research and education activities of FHJ, namely to the climate challenge and how it can be addressed in practice. Testimonies by three graduates, from 630 in 20 years, supported the idea that FHJ stands for practical solutions generated in a multi-disciplinary way. Some good examples were presented to the audience in short video clips.
