Interact with industry-leaders from the comfort of your home.

This year we continue delivering Shell Eco-marathon Virtual Learning Sessions – an opportunity to interact and hear from some of our leading technology and mobility partners from the safety and comfort of your own home. Sessions will be hosted LIVE on Shell’s YouTube channel, where we’ll be joined by our partners including Nissan, Altair and many others.

From building a successful online presence to technical sessions, we’ll cover a range of topics most interesting to you. Each session will end with a live Q&A, so you’ll have an opportunity to get your questions answered real-time.

More Virtual Learning Sessions coming soon!
