EU-Japan cooperation in wind and other renewable energies through Horizon 2020

One of the latest movements in EU is the creation of a European Energy Union under the new European Commission lead by Jean-Claude Juncker by integrating and harmonizing energy policies in each Member Country at the EU level as well as diversifying energy resources as much as possible. Energy is one of the most important areas of the EU’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon 2020, with total amount of about 700 M Euro to be granted for renewable energy related programmes for 2016-2017. Considering that Smart Energy Week 2015 (Wind Expo 2015) is the largest fair in Japan for renewable energies attracting a large number of researchers and industries in the relevant fields, it was an efficient approach to promote Japanese participation to wind and other renewable energy related programmes of Horizon 2020. The objective of the seminar was to promote EU-Japan cooperation in the relevant fields by giving basic information on Horizon 2020, overview of the achievements from the past Framework Programmes in these areas, with a short presentation of industrial perspective on international collaboration in precompetitive phase R&D on wind and renewable energies. Audiences was encouraged to stop by at the booth by the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation for more detailed information and consultation for possible participation.

More details at our booth: Wind Expo 2015, Tokyo Big Sight, West 1 Hall, Booth W5-31 (10:00-18:00 on 25-26 and 10:00-17:00 on 27 February 2015).
