EUREC, created in 1991, is the leading association of research centres and university departments active in the area of renewable energy. The purpose of the association is to promote and support the development of innovative technologies and human resources to enable a prompt transition to a more sustainable energy system. EUREC activities cover: networking to facilitate exchange of information to improve scientific knowledge and expertise on the latest technology as well as policy developments in the area of renewable energy technologies; project communication to promote and disseminate research results related to renewable energy technologies; policy inputs; education and training. EUREC supports the renewable energy research community in ensuring that scientific results are communicated to a wider audience.
EUREC is currently leading communication and coordination activities related to a series of EU co-funded projects, such as: CAPTure (Competitive Solar Power Towers); RHC-ETIP (European Technology and Innovation Platform on Renewable Heating and Cooling).
Main tasks/roles in the project are leading the project’s communication and dissemination activities.
Role and main activities in SHIP2FAIR
EUREC is in charge of leading the dissemination and communication activities of SHIP2FAIR. EUREC’s mission is to promote and support the development of innovative technologies and human resources to enable a prompt transition to a sustainable energy system.
One of EUREC’s main activities is to support communication activities of renewable energy projects at European level. With this respect, EUREC has been leading the communication activities of several EU co-funded projects (InteSusAl, RHC-Platform, SOPHIA, CAPTure, KnowRES…), and it is well placed to lead the communication activities of SHIP2FAIR.
