Matthieu Craye, from European Commission DG Energy speaking to EWEA members

The new EU research programme, Horizon 2020, which kicks off in January 2014, will introduce many novelties compared to the previous Framework Programme and create new opportunities for wind industry R&D:

  • The focus will shift to closer to market research activities (such as development and demonstration)
  • Energy calls will be broader and in 2-year work programmes.
  • The energy research budget is significantly increased.

The first call for project proposals should be published already in December 2013.

The objective of this seminar is to prepare and encourage EWEA members to participate actively in Horizon 2020 energy call.

Participation is open to EWEA members. There is no charge to attend.
