Floor van Schie, GEM Tower PDEng Trainee, participated in a live cross during the Ocean Race Summit on Tuesday May 26, 2020. Floor shared her thoughts in the Innovation Workshop: Sustainable Brands and Overlay.
From May 8 until May 20, 2020, the GEM Tower is located at the Fieldlab SmartBase in Ede-Driesprong, the Netherlands. The Fieldlab SmartBase is one of the innovation test locations from the Dutch Ministry of Defence.
Due to COVID-19 we have changed the plans for our European festival tour with GEM. The GEM Tower was supposed to go to many different festivals and events this summer. As we still want to share the stories of GEM with you, we started a new video series: the Digital GEM Tour.
ESNS who is also partner in the project provided a great place for GEM at the Vismarkt. During the festival experts were present at GEM who provided the public information about the tower and renewable energy in general. The GEM tower is still under construction and was not fully equipped in Groningen to perform optimally on the energy production.
