Coordinating energy research for a low carbon Europe

Integrated Research Programmes (IRPs)

The European Commission launched the Integrated Research Programmes (IRPs) under FP7 as an instrument combining research collaborative projects with Coordination and Support Actions (CSA).

The following EERA Joint Programmes are involved in IRPs, starting their activities in 2014:

ELECTRA – JP Smart Grids
CHEETAH – JP Photovoltaics
STAGE STE – JP Concentrated Solar Power

In addition, the JP Nuclear Materials, through the FP7-funded project MatISSE, proposes a combination of collaborative projects and coordination & support actions in R&D for nuclear materials.
