LCM2017 Keynote speakers

Special keynote speaker

Bertrand Piccard

Most recently, Swiss-born Bertrand Piccard founded and co-piloted the Solar Impulse project, where he and André Borschberg flew 40,000 kilometers around the world using energy only from the sun.

LCM attracts a blend of academics and industrial partners, all of whom are pushing for cutting-edge technology and solutions to steer our globe towards a more sustainable path. Bertrand Piccard shares the same ideas, and we are very thankful and honored that he is able to present for us this September.
