ETIP SNET 17th Regional Workshop – Northern Region

As part of its mission of fostering Research and Innovation activities to support Europe’s energy transition with the goal to research, develop and demonstrate technologies, services and their integration across all energy carriers and considering grids and storage, the European Technology and Innovation Platform for Smart Networks for Energy Transition (ETIP SNET) warmly welcomes you to register to the upcoming 17th ETIP SNET Regional Workshop taking place on 21th March in Vaasa, Finland during Energy Week. Workshop is organised in co-operation with Vaasa Energy Business Innovation Centre (VEBIC).

 

The overall purpose of this event is to link national and regional research, development and innovation (RD&I) to the RDI activities on EU level; specifically, to the ETIP SNET. To that end, the Regional Workshop aims to bring together representatives of national/regional representatives of authorities or funding agencies and coordinators of leading national, regional, EU projects to in identify gaps, common challenges in how national, regional and EU projects and R&I programmes relate to each other and to the higher-level EU R&I roadmaps, in particular the ETIP SNET Roadmap and Implementation Plan.

 

This upcoming ETIP SNET Regional Workshop will be based on the Northern European Macro-Region (consisting of Finland, Estonia, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Lithuania and Latvia).
