The FP7-funded project Empowering Trans-Mediterranean Renewable Energy Research Alliance – ETRERA 2020 is organizing a call for proposals to showcase the most innovative projects in three renewable energy fields: wind, solar and smart grids. Participation is open to all legal entities that are established in a Member State of the European Union or in a Mediterranean Partner Country. A single participant can apply to one, two or all three categories.

The nominated projects should have achieved a successful transformation of knowledge and research results into commercial products and services related to the field of sustainable energy, creating a positive impact on the market and society.

The winning projects will be presented at a “Best Practices” workshop in Istanbul at the beginning of June, 2014. The workshop will give the opportunity to ETRERA partners and stakeholders to learn about these projects and draw up a list of best practices. The lessons that emerge from the winning organisations will be included in an “e-Handbook” that will be produced in the course of 2015 and distributed to the research and industry sector active in renewable energy.

The e-Handbook will detail the steps to be undertaken to ensure that research ideas can be successfully turned into innovative projects. It will be an easy-to-use interactive tool containing tips and suggestions. The e-Handbook will take into account the cultural context of the neighbouring Mediterranean countries involved, as well as the specificities of the renewable energy technology in question.
