IEEE@Siemens 2020

Virtual session - November 16th -18th, 2020
IEEE@Siemens 2020 – Virtual session November 16-18, 2020

1st IEEE IES&PES Finnish Chapter Meeting at Siemens

The event is organized by Siemens Osakeyhtiö in partnership with the local IEEE. It has the function of bringing together professionals in the energy and industrial sectors to grow knowledge in the scope of digitalization and innovation as well as how these concepts are applied to the several business models that one might work with in the 2020s. The event focuses on the impact of digitalization and its main technologies thus introducing concepts now emerging in these two sectors, including demand-side flexibility and the internet-of-energy (IoE) as well as tools to support current challenges. Although this event is organized by the Finnish branch, Siemens and the IEEE welcome any digitalization/value hacking enthusiast to join this event.

Participation in this event is free of charge
