Energy alliance shows joint programming a success, say members

Participants in the European Energy Research Alliance have commended the importance of joint programming, which combines EU funds with national spending, during the programme’s third annual conference in Brussels.

“We are already starting to see the effects of our programme,” said Brigitte Bach from the Austrian Institute of Technology and programme coordinator for the EERA joint programme on smart cities at the event on 18 and 19 April. “Now we see new forms of collaboration between national and EU level.”

EERA was set up in 2008 under the SET-Plan, as an alliance of more than 150 research institutions to develop energy technologies using joint programming. It currently coordinates four programme, on smart cities, geothermal, wind energy and photovoltaics.
