17:00 - 18:30 Making the most of EU R&I funding
Research & Innovation
Room: Hall E
Public funding for R&I can be instrumental in enabling major technology breakthrough as shown in different industry sectors such as telecoms and aerospace. All major economies, including the United States and China, use it. The European Union, which has a tradition of investing in research, has pledged to remain the global leader on renewable energy technologies, including wind. It is ready to invest significant amounts of public money to reach that objective.
This session will provide participants with an overview of the challenges ahead for the wind industry in Europe, and present the R&I EU funding opportunities, with concrete examples of successful initiatives.
ETIPWind activities are funded by the Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2014–2015
