Final Report - DISTRES (Promotion and consolidation of all RTD activities for renewable distributed generation technologies in the Mediterranean region)

Project ID: 31569
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

DISTRES objectives were related to the effort of the European Union for the creation of a Euro-Mediterranean Research and Innovation Area as a component of the opening of European Research Area (ERA) towards this region and target long-range sustainable development around the Mediterranean in the context of transboundary economic, environmental and sociopolitical problems. This included promoting production and exchange of knowledge, technological know-how, innovation, and investment in people and institutions in order to foster socioeconomic progress throughout the Euro-Mediterranean area.

The report which includes images, screenshots and photos covers how the projects objectives aimed to boost the research and development (R&D) capability of Mediterranean countries as well as to encourage the establishment of links between research centres, businesses and other stakeholders in society. In particular, the results from DISTRES paved the way for pilot systems and products, meeting different needs and climate conditions under the specific socioeconomic conditions of the Mediterranean countries and contributed to the development of appropriate RES-DG policies. To that end, DISTRES also reinforced the creation of new jobs in advanced engineering fields.
