Meeting of the EERA Alliance Executive Committee in Almeria (Spain)

2013 / 07 / 01

On the 26th and 27th of June 2013, in Almeria (Spain), there was organized the next meeting of the Executive Committee of European Energy Research Alliance EERA. The Institute of Power Engineering, which has been for four years a member of the Committee, was represented by Dr Andrzej Sławiński. The meeting was  devoted to the discussion on future strategic actions taken by EERA: research cooperation of EU member states in the area of energy research, cooperation of EERA members in realization of Joint Research Programmes, future research financing model within EERA, the legal status of EERA and possibilities of increasing its cooperation with industry. The participants of the meeting had also an opportunity to visit to objects, using concentrated solar energy to generate electricity: research centre Platforma Solar de Almeria and Andasol Solar Power Station, close to Granada.
