Euro-Mediterranean cooperation on research & training in sun based renewable energies - eurosunmed
Coordinator: CNRS-ICUBE, France
Type of funding scheme: Collaborative project for specific cooperation actions dedicated to international cooperation partner countries (SICA)
Work programme topic addressed: FP7-ENERGY-2013-1
EUROSUNMED is a 4-year collaborative project supported by the FP7 Programme. This innovative project is targeting the following objectives:
- Developing new technologies in 3 energy field areas, namely photovoltaics, concentrated solar power and grid integration, at the EU research centres, national agencies and SMEs in strong collaboration with MPC universities, research organizations and SMEs from Morocco and Egypt.
- Testing innovative components (PV cells/modules, heliostats…) under specific conditions of MPCs (irradiation, hot climate, dust…);
- Establishing a strong network between EU and MPCs through exchange of students, senior researchers/engineers for transferring knowledge and technologies.
- Disseminating the results of the project through the organization of scientific events open to a large public from universities, engineering schools and stakeholders.
