An EU funded project has launched a new website in its quest to identify centres of excellence for industrial gas turbines. The aim of this project is to define European centres of excellence, related to industrial gas turbine technology as a platform for the European research area (ERA). The project aims to: - Identify technology gaps which need to be solved to enable industrial gas turbines to become the most efficient, clean and reliable power source of the future; - Establish clearly defined research fields, conduct an unbiased and objective survey to find the best research institutions in these fields and then recommend them as centres of excellence; - Define and prepare in technical clusters European research projects where the centres of excellence will play an essential role. The project is expected to result in strengthened coordination in industrial gas turbine research through the identification of centres of excellence. Further awareness of research activities will also lead to less duplication of research efforts. The project will enable Europe's industrial gas turbine industry to focus on priority research areas, thus increasing the competitiveness of the industry in Europe.
