“Exchange of Experiences” Webinar 6th October 2021

SOLAR-ERA.NET

"Exchange of Experiences" Webinar

European Insights, outcomes and results from transnational projects supported under SOLAR-ERA.NET. 

16 research and innovation projects have been supported under the umbrella of SOLAR-ERA.NET within the co-funded joint call launched in 2016 / 2017. The webinar presents the unique opportunity to share the outcomes, results and experiences from most of these highly innovative, transnational projects with the project participants and interested stakeholders from industry, research and policy.

The goals of the webinar are:

  • To exchange and highlight results and benefits
  • To learn about noteworthy dissemination & exploitation activities realised / foreseen
  • To share experience and to identify critical / success factors for transnational projects in the ERA-NET (Cofund) scheme and future joint calls (added value, suggestions for improvements, etc.

Target audience:

  • Participants in transnational SOLAR-ERA.NET projects
  • Representatives from SOLAR-ERA.NET funding agencies
  • Persons and organisations from industry and research interested in transnational project collaboration in the area of solar power technologies
