Johann Egger studied physics at the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main and at the Free University. During the ERASMUS year at the Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon, he refined his knowledge of solar cells from the more practical perspective of a technical university and acquired Portuguese language skills.

With a master's degree from Freie Universität, Johann Egger joined the Berlin-based company securenergy where he now works as a project manager coordinating large-scale photovoltaic projects.

Johann Egger will not only talk about his studies and his work for a sustainable economy but also about his artistic vein and admiration for nature.
