At the Second SolACE Stakeholder Event, which will take place on May 16 in Foggia, Italy, we want to show you some of the innovations that the project is working on and receive your critical and valuable feedback and comments. Doing so, we may produce solutions that are useful in practise and will make a difference at a large-scale.

The Second SolACE Stakeholder Event  is a free event, presented in both English and Italian and includes refreshments.
