SUPEERA/PANTERA Workshop "Fostering EU Clean Energy transition in Hungary"

Date: 26 October 2022

Time: 09:00 – 17:00 CEST

Location: Budapest, Hungary

Hungary 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, it shows low participation rates in research and innovation (R&I) activities and the realisation of the European Union’s Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan Implementation Plans. As a consequence, and compared to more successful Member States, it has received only a marginal contribution of EU R&I Horizon 2020’s budget.

In this context, SUPEERA and PANTERA are joining forces with the objective to enhance collaboration in R&I activities in Hungary, 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.

Therefore, this workshop will offer a detailed overview of the European policies, strategies, EU funding programmes and collaboration opportunities at the disposal to the research community of Hungary with the aim to bringing them closer to the R&I activities of Europe and get active with the SET Plan process. Meanwhile, the invited experts and stakeholders will share their experience in the project implementation.
