Delivered presentation

Dissemination of the RESHeat project, including the concept, advantages, applicability, scalability, demonstration plants, and research, are conducted via various channels. Presentation is one of the important approaches to enhancing the visibility of the project and its outcome. It is conducted in various venues such as conferences, symposiums, workshops, and to the public. We tried to reach out to stakeholders (academia, industry, policy maker, layman) with different backgrounds, maximizing the benefit of the project outcome.
