Empowering Trans-Mediterranean Renewable Energy Research Alliance for Europe 2020 challenges

ETRERA_2020 is a project aimed at faces the future energy needs in the Euro –Mediterranean area by reinforcing & creating a collaborative research/innovation network for supporting renewable energy sources (RES) technologies development and application.

ETRERA 2020 will address its efforts on secure, clean and efficient energy societal challenge with a focus on the following technologies:

  • wind
  • photovoltaic
  • solar thermal
  • hydrogen and fuel cells
  • grid connection

ETRERA_2020 is a project funded in the framework of the 7FP – international cooperation – R2I-ENP.

R2I-ENP call has a double aim:

  • reinforcing cooperation whit ENP Countries
  • bridging the gap between research and innovation

The ETRERA_2020 project objectives, to be reached by the end of the project, are:

  • Improve human resources & know how of MPC centers.
  • Increase the networking opportunity among the main actors of the RES value chain
  • Increase of public – private partnership
  • Increase the accessibility to research facilities
  • Increase the project/partners visibility in order to attract potential research/industry partners

The project main outputs are:

  • the catalogue of competence of the 8 Research centres: research capacity, equipments, testing facilities, etc
  • a common R&DI strategy/roadmap with policy recommendations and a financial plan
  • some tutorial/publication on market and risk assessment, finance opportunities, etc
  • the setting up of a Meta-cluster
  • a Public-Private Partnership in RES technologies
  • the exchange of best practices and mobility activities from Research to Enterprise
  • technological/R&DI and business services
  • the organisation of international brokerage events R2B
  • the organisation of an international scientific conference

Project partners are research centres, intermediary and technology transfer organizations and business incubators:
