A networking event set-up to encourage new links between academia and business ahead of the upcoming Horizon 2020 work programmes has been organised by Cardiff University.

The University’s Energy Systems Research Institute will hold the two-day event in Brussels, bringing together expertise from across the sector to discuss opportunities ahead of the next round of European funding.

The event, entitled Opening Energy Horizons: Getting ready for success in the new Horizon 2020 work programmes (2018-2020), will pay special attention to the social sciences and humanities and will explore the crucial role that citizens play in changing our energy systems.

The event will allow industry and academia to share examples of best practice in existing Horizon 2020 funded energy projects.

In addition to this, the event will focus on the core topics of energy research in the next Horizon 2020 funding call, enabling stakeholders to identify areas of common interest and to support emerging collaborations.

The four topics are: global leadership in renewable energy technologies; smart citizen-centred energy system; efficient energy use; and decarbonisation of fossil fuels.

The event will take place at Wales House, Brussels on Monday 22 May and Tuesday 23 May 2017. To register for the event, click here.
