Opening Symposium - Centre for Energy, Environment and Health (CEEH)

We celebrate the opening of Centre for Energy, Environment and health with a series of speeches and lectures from 14:00 to 16:00. Thereafter there will be a reception in the cantina at the Rockefeller Complex.

Everbody are welcome. 

CEEH is an interdisciplinary collaboration with the mission to support planning of future Danish energy systems, where both direct costs as well as external cost to the environment, climate and health are considered. The centre is a collaboration between 7 different Danish institutet, and is led by Eigil Kaas, Professor in meteorology at NBI. The centre will work on several realistic scenarios for the quantity and type of the futures energy production and associated emissions to the atmosphere. It is financed by the Danish Council for Strategic Research and runs over 5 years beginning in January 2007. See further http:\\\
