EEBERS Report Summary

Project reference: 636725

Periodic Reporting for period 1 - EEBERS (EEB ICT ClustERS)

Summary of the context and overall objectives of the project

Background and context:
There are about 130 ongoing or recently completed European RTD projects within the EeB PPP initiative and related other EU programmes.
About 87 of them will continue beyond 2014. Approximately 35 new projects can be expected to from the EeB calls closing in 2014.
Additional related projects, approximately 15, can be expected from other H2020 calls closing in 2014. Out of all these about 134 EeB related projects that will be active beyond 2014 about 86 are likely to address ICT as one of their key priorities.

–These projects are the primary target of this CSA.

The mission of EEBERS is to identify opportunities for synergies in ICT related RTD in the EeB (energy efficient buildings) domain and to engage stakeholders in networking for future RTD and exploitation of results.

In line with this overall mission the tangible objectives of the EEBERS project are to:

1. Engage relevant stakeholders in identifying and exploiting opportunities for synergy:
Mapping of the EeB domain i.e. identifying relevant RTD an innovation activities / projects, their main focus areas, expected results and involved stakeholders.
Engaging the stakeholders in contributing to the common areas of interest

2. Analyse and consolidate latest developments in the EeB domain:
Technological developments based on recent RTD and literature.
Best practices, trends and visions.
Achieved and expected results, emerging exploitation prospects and potential impacts.

3. Stimulate cooperation for future RTD and exploitation of results:
Promote networking and collaboration between key stakeholders.
Catalyze exploitation of RTD results.
Suggest future RTD priorities.
Suggest mechanisms for continued clustering/networking between stakeholders.

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

T1.1 Mapping and clustering of EeB domain
Map the EeB domain projects, contacts, topics, results and correspondent TRL.
RESULT : D1.1 EeB projects map Delivered as planned. Submission delayed due to improving of stakeholders mapping and text editing in order to improve readability of the public deliverable.

T1.2 Engagement of stakeholders
Define of EEBERS stakeholders community.
Define the project clustering model.
RESULT : Delivered as planned D1.2 Stakeholder community

T2.1 Review technological developments
Develop a literature review of technological developments in selected EeB domains.
RESULT : Delivered as planned D2.1 Literature review

T2.2 Consolidation of best practices, trends and visions
Consolidate best practices, trends and visions from selected EeB projects.
RESULT : Drafted as planned D2.2 Best practices, trends and visions

T2.3 Consolidation of results and expected impacts
Consolidate information about the expected results and impacts from selected EeB projects.
RESULT: Drafted as planned D2.3 Results and expected impacts

T41 Dissemination
Provide information about the project results to various target groups, in order to realize the expected impacts.
RESULT: Web site presenting the project. Poster and leaflet released. Links to related other activities and networks in the website.
Summary of the project public web site. Images of the project leaflet and poster. Plan for dissemination / communication actions during months 1-15 and initial plan for months 16-24.

T42 Communication
Communicate with external stakeholders and engage them in the project for getting their inputs and feedback.
RESULT: Done as planned. totally 3 of Tentatively 6 workshops for all project (planned 3 in P1)

T4.3 Networking
RESULT: Done as planned. Initial suggestions for networking and alliances between stakeholders involved in related EeB activities

T5.1 Project coordination
RESULT: Done as planned. manage communication between the project partners and coordinate the work. provide the ICT platform for information sharing and archiving

T5.2 Progress reporting and financial management
RESULT: Done as planned. manage communications with the EC, prepare reporting to the EC, manage administrative and financial issues, and ensure compliance of the project to the Grant Agreement.

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)

EEBERS creates impact functioning as a platform for establishing and supporting communication and networking between stakeholders, enhancing knowledge exchange and, facilitating collaborations with supportive actions.

In the first period work set-up the foundations for this platform and its activation. The second period will focus on increasing its dynamics and communication with key stakeholders.
The information in section 2.2 of DoA (Part B ) remains valid and no updates are needed.

The following presents a summary on work developed in the 1st period on the projects key factors to create impact:

1) Key stakeholders and links between them:
WP1 identified the key stakeholders. Actions were taken to engage these.

2) Project topics and links between them:
WP1 mapped all relevant projects topics and cluster these in taxonomy in order to help clustering synergies.

3) Project results and their TRL levels:
Task 2.1 identified the project results and analysed TRL levels.
These work will be continued in the 2nd period within tasks T2.2 and T2.3.

4) Links with innovation and technology transfer initiatives:
these were identified during P1 and will be explored in P2.
