  • Innovation and Transfer of Results of Energy RTD in National and European Community Programmes, A Comparative Study of Mechanisms, Results and Good Practices


EU funded Research and Technology Development (RTD) is moving from supporting a wide range of projects with very specific technology objectives to structuring the European Research Area. Despite of this change in focus, maximising the return to the European economy and society - by ensuring that research results are eventually taken up by the market - remains a priority.
This is all the more valid for energy research as the important challenges, with respect to security of supply, reduction of green house gases and competitiveness are to be met urgently.
The study identifies, documents and compares best practices and existing tools and mechanisms in the domain of support to innovation and technology transfer developed by the EU and Members States with respect to energy technologies.
