Cyprus is actively working towards the success of the energy transition objectives and implementation of declared policies for achieving the low carbon economy. Yet, together with other less involved countries they have low participation rates in research and innovation (R&I) activities. Even though the picture is a bit different on the realisation of the European Union’s Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan Implementation Plans, where Cyprus is very active in several Implementation Working Groups, there is still ground for improvement.
In this context, SUPEERA project with a strong support from the PANTERA project is aiming to enhance collaboration in R&I activities in these countries, facilitate knowledge exchange and showcase best practices of how international networking and cooperation between national stakeholders and key international associations and organisations can be beneficial for establishing long-lasting interactions and fostering joint R&I activities.
The workshop will offer a detailed overview of the European policies, strategies, EU funding programmes and collaboration opportunities at the disposal of the research community of Cyprus and bringing them closer to the R&I activities of Europe and reap more benefits from their participation in the SET Plan process.
The invited experts and stakeholders will share their experience in the project implementation. The possibility of developing a shared vision and strategy for cooperation of the R&I family of Cyprus in the upcoming research and innovation activities and work to identify strong points and nurture solutions for building a competitive advantage will be discussed all together.
