EU Research: Bridging the gap in energy research

In Europe's leading research dissemination magazine "EU Research" (Volume 2015, issue 1) an article about the ener2i project and its activities for bridging the gap between energy research and innovation was published. ener2i enhances the innovation capacity and stimulates effective linkages between research and business actors from the EU and its Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, and Moldova. The project works in the field of energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy sources (RES). In the article, the project's scientific coordinator Manfred Spiesberger of Centre for Social Innovation (ZSI), offers an overview of the main objectives and the importance of the ener2i project. The designed approach to enhance innovation capacity is outlined, which focuses on support measures such as Innovation Vouchers, brokerage events, twinning activities, and workshops.
