Dear CLASP partners and friends,

We're looking forward to seeing many of you at the upcoming eceee Summer Study in Toulon/Hyères, France this week.

CLASP team members, representatives of the SEAD Initiative, and other partners will be presenting research findings through panel sessions, poster displays, and informal sessions. Additionally, eceee and CLASP are jointly hosting a solutions workshop discussing the European energy labelling and ecodesign framework directives on Thursday afternoon.

Please consider joining us. Additional details on CLASP and SEAD activities are included below with a contact person indicated after each item.

We look forward to hearing more about your work advancing energy efficiency and to seeing many of you there.
