EU Sustainable Energy Week side event: Smart Regions – Smart Solutions – 19 June 2019, Brussels, Belgium
Together with its working groups, ERRIN will host a side event during European Sustainable Energy Week considering how the next European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon Europe, can deliver on support the decarbonisation of our energy and transport systems.
Mobilising the power of Europe’s research and innovation ecosystems at a regional level will be critical in terms of meeting the ambitions of the European Commission’s Clean Planet for All strategy. Using concrete examples, this session will demonstrate the role of regions in helping the EU reach its decarbonisation goals, by fostering engagement, empowering all actors to work together, and highlighting the crucial role of place-based innovation ecosystems.
The event will provide inputs to the Horizon Europe Strategic planning process, including proposing priority areas for the thematic cluster in climate, energy and mobility, whilst also offering up some inspiration for the mission on climate neutral and smart cities.
The meeting will take place on 19th June at 14.00-15.30.
