EUREF-CAMPUS in Berlin 

#ICNC22

WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT

The intercharge Network Conference (ICNC) has been returning annually to Berlin since 2012. With the ICNC, Hubject, the organizing company, has created a platform that drives the development and expansion of eMobility worldwide and brings together all key stakeholders. 

Over the last few years, the ICNC has developed into a defining global B2B event for eMobility. Thought leaders and executives from the international EV Charging industry, start-ups, associations, and government agencies come together in Berlin to document progress, showcase new technologies and coordinate and harmonize further action on an international scale. 

More than 4,000 visitors onsite and online and 35 speakers will illuminate this year's theme "digital DNA of eMobility" from all possible angles. The conference is supported by a total of 40 sponsors.  

During the conference, four innovative start-ups will have the possibility to give a short 5 min pitch in front of an expert jury and the audience. The winner will be determined live on stage!
