Contribute to EERA Mobility Scheme

Contribute to EERA Mobility Scheme

The European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) ExCo has created a Task Force to deliver a proposal for an operational student and researcher mobility scheme to support collaboration with different EERA Joint Programmes.

This will enable the determination of inspiring and innovative best practices to be used in the development of an EERA mobility scheme and support its testing across the Energy sector.

The EERA TF aims to identify inspiring and innovative best practices for the development of a new EERA mobility scheme. With this goal to collect relevant information and experience with national and international instruments supporting researcher (academic or industrial) and student mobility, the Task Force has set up a questionnaire.
You are invited you to share your opinions and insights in this questionnaire und thus contribute to the inclusion of best practices within a new EERA mobility scheme.

Whether you are a research unit leader or an individual researcher, your views will be appreciated and will be processed anonymously. Respondents will have the opportunity to receive a final report of the Task Force results.

You can complete the questionnaire at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/EERAmobility until 31 March, 2017.

Register for ISGAN Webinar on Reference Networks Models on 3 March, 2017

Register for ISGAN Webinar on Reference Networks Models on 3 March, 2017

On 3 March, 2017, the ISGAN Academy is hosting a webinar presenting the Reference Networks Models (RNM), which are useful tools for large-scale distribution network planning. These models combine technical and economic analyses: operation of distribution networks with optimal reinforcements and new infrastructure needs. The webinar will present the modelling details of RNM as well as the applications and case studies.

RNM are becoming increasingly popular as they provide regulators with an estimation of the efficient costs that would be incurred by a distribution company supplying a certain geographical area.

EERA Policy Event on 3 May 2017: Cooperation in European Energy Research & Innovation

EERA Policy Event on 3 May 2017: Cooperation in European Energy Research & Innovation

A joint and coordinated effort of all stakeholders is essential to advance energy research and innovation in Europe. With the goal to review the status of stakeholder cooperation in energy R&I in Europe, the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) organises a policy event on 3 May, 2017, in Brussels (BE).


This event will be the opportunity for the stakeholders in the energy R&I community to discuss their views on cooperation and how to achieve the objectives of the Integrated SET-Plan and the innovation goals set out in the European Commission’s 2016 “Clean Energy for All Europeans” package to support a more competitive, modern and cleaner energy system.
