An overview of projects, stakeholders, companies and corporate in the field of Energy and Environment participating to the project event Research meets Industry
The EU-funded project FET BRIEFING has recently published the booklet “Research meets Industry”. In line with the project’s mission to bridge the FET innovation gap by bringing business, stakeholders and researchers together to explore the innovation potential of their research, the booklet offers an overview of 19 Future and Emerging Technology/EIC Pathfinder projects in the field of Energy and Environment that have been selected to participate to the namesake event of March-April 2021.
The “Research Meets Industry” event brings together the best European researchers and spinoffs working on future technologies in the Energy and Environment field.
The projects have the chance to present their breakthrough innovations to an audience of companies, corporates, research institutions and business stakeholders within three thematic sessions:
- Energy Storage and Conversion
- Solar Fuel and Energy Harvesting
- Materials and Technologies for Energy and Environment
The booklet also offers an overview of all stakeholders, companies and corporate attending the event and with an interest in the Energy and Environment field. The matchmaking and the related publication give the opportunity to innovative businesses to discover technology that might disrupt the energy industry and build future cooperation. It creates a fertile ground to start conversions for consortia and collaboration that could be translated in new projects for the EIC Transition to Innovation calls.
The “Research meets Industry” event and booklet have been realized with the support of the EIC Programme Managers responsible for Green Technology in the context of the European Innovation Council (EIC). The mission of EIC is to identify and nurture breakthrough research and game-changing innovations to develop deep tech companies and entrepreneurs, so overcoming the European Paradox – the perceived limitations of European Countries to transfer scientific results into innovations.
