SUN-ERGY Kick-off event
SUN-ERGY is a proposal for a European large-scale research initiative in the area of fossil-free fuels and chemicals. The initiative will be launched with the objective to complement existing European partnerships and enable the full decoupling of economic growth from the utilization of fossil resources.
SUN-ERGY stems from two European initiatives, SUNRISE and ENERGY-X. These two ongoing Horizon 2020 Coordination & Support Actions (CSAs) have been selected by the European Commission in 2018 as preparatory actions addressing major technological and societal challenges. As these CSAs will end in February 2020, they have joined forces to launch SUN-ERGY, a new large-scale research initiative in Horizon Europe, the next research and innovation framework programme.
During the event, SUNRISE and ENERGY-X will present their achievements, and propose their joint vision on decarbonizing the European industry and society over the next 30 years.
The kick-off event is organized in two sessions: an afternoon session on 5 February 2020, from 16.00 to 18.00, followed by a reception (TownHall, Square de Meeus, 5), and a morning session on 6 February 2020, from 9.00 to 13.00 (The Representation of the State of Hessen to the EU, 21 Rue Montoyer).
