Strengthening research collaboration opportunities Fostering EU Clean Energy transition - Final event of the PANTERA Project
Share this page
PAN European Technology Energy Research Approach (PANTERA) is an EU H2020 project aimed at setting up a European forum composed of R&I stakeholders active in the fields of smart grids, storage and local energy systems, including policy makers, industrial stakeholders, standardisation bodies and experts in both research and academia, representing the EU energy system. The long- term objective of PANTERA is to strengthen EU clean energy R&I activities with special focus on the countries that appear to be less involved.
To reach these goals, PANTERA launched an interactive multi-functional collaborative platform: EIRIE, which stands for European Interconnection for Research Innovation & Entrepreneurship (https://ses.jrc.ec.europa.eu/eirie/en). EIRIE’s vision is to become a reference operational point to unify European activity, incentivise further investments in smart grids, storage and local energy systems, support access to exploitable results that can spark further cooperation and bridge the existing gaps.
As we have experienced over the last 4.5 years, alignment and collaborative work are essential to create the pan-European modus operandi envisioned within PANTERA. The feedback and continuing support of relevant national and international stakeholders, EU platforms and initiatives, national and international projects, will enable EIRIE to fulfil its goals.
