  • 8 big conferences (CARE INNOVATION 1996 in Frankfurt, CARE INNOVATION 1998 and Going Green – CARE INNOVATION 2002, 2006 and 2010 in Vienna as well as Electronics Goes Green 2000, 2004 and 2008 in Berlin) and several smaller Green Electronics events (Stuttgart, Dortmund, Eindhoven, Oslo, Goeteborg, London, Paris, Brussels, Bilbao, Milano, Budapest, Miskolc, Prague, Bucharest, Vienna, …) are regularly organised
  • The last event successfully organised by CARE Electronics was the Green Electronics 2013 in Budapest (November 2013)
  • The next big conference organised by CARE Electronics will be the Going Green – CARE INNOVATION 2014 in Vienna (November 2014)
  • Influence on the RTD Framework Programmes of the European Commission

Finally in 2005 we decided to withdraw as an EUREKA umbrella and continue as an independent network as we saw more advantages in this way.
