First international forum successfully organised in Lyon, 2 November 2015

From 26th of October until 2nd of November around 120 young Europeans from over 20 countries gathered for the first Academic Power Shifts Forum in Lyon. They discussed various aspects on energy policies in Europe within five topic dimensions.

The young participants enjoyed next to their discussions a rich cultural programme as well as an input from an expert panel discussion and a closing speech by the patron Sylvie Guillaume, Vice-President of the European Parliament. In addition to the main partner the Innogy Foundation we want to thank the University of Lyon 2 and the Région RhôneAlpes for their cooperation and the Ministry of Ecology, Development and Energy for their support.
