Energy research capacites in EU Member StatesFunded under: FP7-JRC
This report gives an overview of the energy research capacities in EU Member States. It is composed of a quantitative analysis of funding for energy research and an assessment of the institutional capacity in energy research policy making. The analysis shows that Member States award relatively little importance to energy research in general. While energy R&D priorities vary among Member States, shared priorities exist for some technologies among various countries. Due to the diverse institutional set-ups the exploitation of synergies remains challenging despite recent efforts for better coordination of national efforts. An earlier version of the report has provided input to the European Commission's proposal for a Strategic Energy Technology Plan 2007, and has been published as Staff Working Document SEC (2007)1511.
