Save the date for the PANTERA Workshop “Energy Transition in the Baltic States: Funding Opportunities for Smart Energy Research and Innovation”
The European Commission has made a commitment to tackling climate and environmental challenges by adopting a new growth strategy – The European Green Deal. It aims to “transform the European Union into a fair and prosperous society, with a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy where there are no net emissions of greenhouse gases in 2050 and where economic growth is decoupled from resource use”. The energy sector decarbonisation plays a pivotal role in achieving climate neutrality, which will require a significant acceleration of common clean energy research and innovation efforts. Therefore, no Member State shall be left behind.
This workshop will explore the performance and challenges in research and innovation in the Baltic States in the field of Smart Grids, Energy Storage and Local Energy Systems that could be facilitated through the PANTERA project. The invited experts and stakeholders will share their experience in the project implementation. Furthermore, European Commission representatives will give insights into the newest funding opportunities and support instruments.
The possibility of developing a shared vision and strategy for cooperation between the Baltic States in the upcoming research and innovation activities, and working together to identify strong points and nurture solutions for building a competitive advantage will be thoroughly discussed during the workshop.
