Success Stories - Domestic fuel cells: the power within
19 Jul 2017 at 5:00pm
Why buy electricity from the grid when you can produce it affordably yourself - and heat your home at the same time? And reduce your environmental footprint? And possibly even save money? Why indeed. Residential fuel cell units could deliver these benefits to millions of homes in the EU, and preparations to ramp up their production are under way.

21 Jun 2017 at 5:00pm
The EU-funded project “Turkey In Horizon 2020” and the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) have the honour to invite you to the “Cities of the Future 2017” International Brokerage Event. The event will target the following Horizon 2020 calls: • “Smart, Sustainable and Resilient Cities” and “Energy Efficient Buildings” • “Circular Economy (SPIRE, Raw Materials and Water) • “Mobility for Growth,” “Automated Road Transport” and “The European Green Vehicles Initiative” • “Smart Energy Systems and Consumers”
We will bring together up to 400 participants from Europe and Turkey, coming from both research and industrial communities, and municipalities in the domains addressed.
This will give you the unique opportunity to connect not only with Turkish and European participants but also with highly qualified research-performing SMEs. Hence, this event will be an excellent platform to expand your network and create new partnerships for the upcoming calls in Horizon 2020.
Join this event, present your project ideas and discuss them with potential partners in face-to-face meetings! What is even better, we have some funds available to cover travel and accommodation expenses for participants who want to present their proposals ideas in one of our workshops!
The earlier you register and provide us with your idea, the better will be your chances for this travel fund.
Registration will be opened soon. Please check http://h2020.org.tr/en/COF2017 and http://turkeyinh2020.eu for the registration announcement. Looking forward to meeting you in Brussels, TUBITAK

Research Headlines - From farm to flight
21 Jun 2017 at 5:00pm
Biofuels for aviation face numerous challenges in the journey from farm to flight. An EU-funded project has successfully demonstrated via test flights how biofuel can enter the aviation supply chain as a greener alternative to fossil fuels. Thousands of passengers have already taken flight on biofuel.

18 Jun 2017 at 5:00pm
Projects funded under the Horizon 2020 funding programme will contribute to the DG Research and Innovation & EASME coordinated policy session on 'How economic and social actors can champion CO2 phase-out' which will take place on 22 June from 16.00 - 17.30 at Résidence Palace (Salle Maelbeek).
Description: Greenhouse gas emissions will need to rapidly fall from now to 2050 if we are to keep the European and global economy on a track consistent with the Paris Agreement. Incremental gains in energy or production efficiency will not provide the necessary emission reductions, while the profound transformation required will put the whole economy, and some sectors especially, in front of a great challenge.
Lowering emission caps or an ever increasing carbon price will challenge innovators, redefine competitiveness and may have a restructuring effect on markets.
Can deep decarbonisation pathways be reconciled with the political objectives of reinvigorating European industries and strengthening economic competitiveness?
What does science have to say about the risks and opportunities related to innovation, deployment, financing or public acceptance?
