Call for proposals under 7th EC Framework Programme for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration Activities - Cooperation - FP7-ENERGY-2008-TREN-1 FP7 Closed!

Objectives

The European Commission has given notice of the launch of call for proposals under the ‘2008 Cooperation’ work programme of the 7th Framework Programme of the European Community for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration Activities (2007 to 2013). The programme will follow an accelerated rate of development of energy technologies to make its use more profitable and to create a more sustainable energy economy within Europe.

The call addresses different technologies at research areas and topic level, in most cases asking for a predominant demonstration component. The main objective is shortening the time to market for promising technologies and systems, and the proposed solutions should go significantly beyond existing state of the art.
