This year's theme, "Energy Research and Innovation for a Competitive Europe", highlights the need to reinforce the research and innovation landscape, to enhance competitiveness and sovereignty of clean energy technology value chains within the EU.

The conference objectives are to:

  • Reinforce the R&I landscape

  • Enhance synergies between national & EU policies

In addition to the panel and parallel sessions, the event includes interactive sessions and several complementary sessions, as well as opportunities for face-to-face and informal meetings.

The SET Plan was launched in 2007 and aims to accelerate the development and deployment of low-carbon technologies through cooperation among Member States, industry, research institutions and other stakeholders, and in doing so, also deliver on the key objectives of the Energy Union. EERA is the official research pillar of the SET-Plan.
