Monday 30 January 2017, 09:30 – 16:40 GMT

MEnS (Meeting of Energy professional Skills), project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 R&I programme, warmly invites building performance practitioners to a big event on the 30th January. Get in touch with high-end experts on building energy performance issues. 
The idea behind MEnS – Meeting of Energy professional Skills - originates from the need to provide answers and solutions to current problems faced by today's society. The programme was therefore constructed in a way such as to answer the specific challenges in the field of skills upgrading for the professionals involved in the construction industry.

The purpose of this event will be for the consortium and key stakeholders to update the community on their programmes and work packages. It will also provide an opportunity for feedback on the key messages from the program-leads.
