Copenhagen Bug Fest is a yearly festival focusing on sustainable energy. In 2018, Associate Professor Morten Madsen from the Mads Clausen Institute of SDU presented the institute’s organic solar cell activities in the Interreg NSR Project 2IMPREZS.

This year’s Copenhagen Bug Fest took place on September 21st and 22nd in Copenhagen with participation of more than 500 pupils from schools in the capital area. The festival is about sustainability and as the title suggest, one of the focus areas was the use of bugs in food. However, sustainable energy was also on the agenda, and thus Associate Professor Morten Madsen from the Mads Clausen Institute took part and presented the institute’s organic solar cell activities in the 2IMPREZS project.

Afterwards, Morten talked to visitors and school kids at his booth, which was one of many booths presenting initiatives in sustainable energy and climate changes.
