Shaping the Future Advanced Materials for Energy Transition and Future Mobility

Workshop organised  by EMIRI, with the support of eseia

EuroNanoForum 2019 Conference

14 June 2019, 11:30 – 13:30                                               

Workshop first announcement

How to impact the upcoming co-construction discussions on the strategic planning of Horizon Europe?
Why and how to be involved in R&I EU-funded projects?

In November 2018, the European Commission adopted “a strategic long-term vision for a prosperous, modern, competitive and climate neutral economy by 2050 – A Clean Planet for all.”. The strategy shows how Europe can lead the way to climate neutrality by investing into realistic technological solutions, empowering citizens, and aligning action in key areas such as industrial policy, finance, or research – while ensuring social fairness for a just transition. A range of existing and novel technologies will be necessary for reaching climate neutrality. These technologies are at different levels of development and deployment. A massive research and innovation effort, built around a coherent strategic research and innovation and investment agenda is needed in the EU within the next two decades to make low and zero-carbon solutions economically viable.

The workshop will focus on up-coming actions to shape Horizon Europe programme for Research and innovation, targeting a pan-European ecosystem gathering Academia, Research & Technology Organisations and Industry. It will also showcase several examples of innovation support in the field of Advanced Materials for clean energy and clean mobility.
