Presentation of the Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda of the Horizon Europe Partnership "Clean Energy Transition" & "Driving Urban Transitions”


At a side event of the SET-Plan Conference 2020, the two Horizon Europe Partnerships "Clean Energy Transition" and "Driving Urban Transitions" will present their strategic research and innovation agendas. The AIT played a key role in the preparation of the Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda (SRIA) for the Horizon Europe Partnership "Clean Energy Transition". The Center for Innovation Systems & Policy (Susanne Meyer & Nikolas Reschen) supported the Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Action in coordinating the process of creating the SRIA between May and November 2020. A Stakeholder Dialogue was set up to co-create the SRIA with 25 European countries. These served as a basis for the creation of the agenda. 

The Center for Energy (Helfried Brunner) was involved in the identification and preparation of the 8 Research & Innovation Challenges: 
CETP Challenge 1 "Optimised integrated European energy systems"
CETP Challenge 2 "Enhanced Zero Emission Power Technologies"
CETP Challenge 3 "Enabling climate neutrality with storage technologies, renewable fuels and CCU/CCS"
CETP Challenge 4 "Efficient zero-emission heating and cooling solutions"
CETP Challenge 5 "Integrated Regional Energy Systems" 
CETP Challenge 6 "Integrated Industrial Energy Systems"
CETP Challenge 7 "Integration in the built environment"
CETP Challenge 8 "Crosscutting Dimensions"

The result will be presented to the public online on November 23rd from 10:00-12:00. For further information please contact AIT Senior Expert Advisor Susanne Meyer
