This SmartGrids ERA-Net workshop focuses on the role of smart grids in smart city concepts and deals with the specific requirements regarding joint R & D projects. In particular, the role of smart grids for the implementation of smart cities will be discussed, relevant research areas further defined and necessary research questions identified.
Smart grids and smart cities experts, amongst others from Austria, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Sweden and Switzerland are present and have the unique opportunity for intensive know-how exchange and determining future research topics and funding priorities, together with representatives of national / European funding agencies.
At this workshop, the contents and priorities of future transnational funding calls in the field of smart grids will be defined by selected smart grids/smart cities actors, together with program managers of national funding programs. In particular, an ERA-Net Plus call is being prepared as a proposal to the European Commission for the work programme 2014/2015.
This workshop is targeted to experts in the fields of smart grids and smart cities as well as policy makers and program managers of relevant national R & D funding programs. This workshop is the 2nd event of the SmartGrids event series towards ERA-NET Plus.
