SET-Plan conference, EERA side -event: Energy research for driving industry competitiveness and job creation in Europe


This event took place on 10th December 2014 in Rome, Italy.
The main challenge of the SET-Plan is to tackle climate change by rebuilding our energy supply system while ensuring security and competitiveness of European energy. EERA, as the broadest research alliance in Europe, can contribute to tackle this challenge enhancing R&D effort. However, a major cooperation with industry is needed. The event gave the panelists the occasion to discuss  future perspectives for a closer and wider knowledge exchange between the energy research sector and industry.
The EERA chairman Hervé Bernard moderated the interesting discussion. We thank the  panelists for their participation to the  event:

Mr Luciano Martini, Coordinator of EERA JP Smart Grids, RSE
Mrs Gwennael Joliff-Botrel, European Commssion, DG R&I
