Only the networks and partnerships that are members of the Leading-Edge Programme (LEP), the governing body of the HNPW, are invited to organize sessions and exhibition stands at the HNPW. Please see tab "Networks and Partnerships" above for an overview of registered networks and partnerships.

Who can participate in remote and face-to-face sessions:

  1. Invited persons: Invitations will be sent directly by the networks and partnerships to their members and stakeholders for the sessions they organize.
