About FME day

Throughout the day, participants will engage in parallel 90-minute sessions, each crafted by sub-committees comprising members from relevant FMEs. These sessions are dedicated to exploring specific aspects of the central theme: the role of FMEs in mitigating climate and energy challenges. The aim is to foster interdisciplinary exchange.
