"In addition to hosting a booth at the Exhibition, the Houston Technology Centre and Skolkovo Foundation has invited a handful of highly selected Skolkovo sponsored projects and start-ups to showcase their work to a group of corporate leaders in the Oil and Gas industry” said Prof Macchietto “This is a great endorsement of the results the UNIHEAT team has achieved in just a year, and a terrific opportunity. We are looking forward to the event.“
Dr Francesco Coletti commented:
“Houston is considered by many the “Energy Capital of the World” and it undoubtedly represents the most prominent hub of the oil industry in the United States. This exhibition will be a great opportunity to extend the reach of the UNIHEAT project to the US market, establish new contacts with a wider audience and engage with key energy companies.”
