EeB-CA2 Report Summary

Project ID: 637003

Periodic Reporting for period 1 - EeB-CA2 (EeB Cluster Activities Coordination Action)

Reporting period: 2015-02-01 to 2016-01-31

Summary of the context and overall objectives of the project

EeB-CA2 initiative is to provide the right set of instruments supporting technology-clustering and geo-clustering upon the whole set of EeB PPP EC-funded projects related to energy efficiency in the built environment, with the following primary ambition: to enhance and rationalise coordinated and broader dissemination, technology transfer and future exploitation activities of clustered projects, so as to help them better promoting and marketing their achievements and deliverables.

Work performed from the beginning of the project to the end of the period covered by the report and main results achieved so far

Work performed during the first period includes:
Project management activities (WP1):
• Day to day administrative and financial coordination of the project
• Organisation of 4 consortium meetings
• Participation to 2 coordination meetings with the other CSAs (AMANAC, EEBers, SWIMing)
• Organisation of regular virtual meetings as required by the progress of the work in the various WPs
Community building and management activities (WP2):
• Released the Community description and management organisation (D2.1)
• Formed the EeB-CA2 Expert group, organised and launched the open call for experts
• Continuous interaction with the community of EeB projects in the context of the work conducted in the other WPs: disseminated the 2015 monitoring questionnaire built in WP6, collected content for the 2016 edition of the EeB PPP Project Review built in WP4, etc.
• Advertised EeB-CA2 activities and achievements through the organisations identified in D2.1
Supporting Platform Development activities (WP3):
• Released the specifications of the EeB-CA2 platform (D3.1)
• Developed and published the first release of the platform at
Integrated Dissemination of Clustered Project Knowledge activities (WP4):
• Released the Integrated Dissemination and Communication plan (D4.1)
• Designed and uploaded the EeB-CA2 website
• Gathered public deliverables from EeB PPP completed projects
• Released, promoted and managed the official ECTP – Energy Efficient Buildings Committee LinkedIn group
• Developed (80%) the EeB PPP project review 2016 booklet
• Organised a call for co-exhibition at WBC16 Finland
• Designed a mock-up of “service offers” brochures
Integrated Pathways for Technology Transfer activities (WP5):
• Identified and grouped exploitable technologies for 110 project through a questionnaire
• 53 of the 89 projects with technologies and innovations with a TRL of 6+ were interviewed and nearly 200 TRLs validated
• Developed a questionnaire to be used as a self-assessment for organisations participating in EeB projects
• Implemented one training session
Monitoring and future priorities activities (WP6):
• Conducted the 2015 EeB PPP Progress monitoring: circulated the questionnaire in April 2015, and delivered the monitoring report in July 2015.

Progress beyond the state of the art and expected potential impact (including the socio-economic impact and the wider societal implications of the project so far)

During this first period, EeB-CA2 has contributed to:
• Increase public presence and awareness of EeB PPP activities
• Stimulate networks and alliances for further RTD and industrial innovation in the addressed technology and application areas
Preparatory work was also conducted in order to:
• Speed up industrial exploitation and technology transfer of results of EeB PPP projects
