Short description
EUROGIA+, the EUREKA cluster supporting new technologies in the clean energies sector, announced its latest call for the submission of international research and development projects. EUROGIA+ is a market-oriented programme, financing projects aiming at the development of new technological products by commercial entities, companies or universities, transforming academic knowledge into innovative technologies. The cluster addresses all areas of the energy mix, from renewable energy to efficiency, and reduction of the carbon footprint of fossil fuels. EUROGIA+ goal is to support and promote international partnerships developping innovative projects in low-carbon energy technologies. EUROGIA+ is a bottom-up, industry driven, market oriented programme which addresses all areas of the energy mix, from renewable energy to efficiency, and reduction of carbon footprint of fossil fuels.
All innovative project ideas that will reduce the carbon footprint of energy production and use potentially qualify for the EUROGIA+ label. This quality label facilitates the access to public funding, and potential customers for the project partners involved. Since the start of EUROGIA+ in 2008, 28 transnational projects were labeled representing close to 120 M€ of project costs.
