The European Technology and Innovation Platform on Renewable Heating & Cooling (RHC-ETIP), Deep Geothermal (DG ETIP) and the DHC+ Technology Platform are happy to announce the organisation of a brokerage event focused on the upcoming Horizon 2020 Energy Work programme 2018-2020.


The event will take place on 16 November in Brussels and will foster cross-sectorial cooperation between the different technologies under the scope of the platforms. The collaboration across different sectors has been highlighted several times by the European Commission as one of the main priorities of the next Energy Work Programme. Therefore, meeting partners from other sectors will be a crucial step in order to be successful with the upcoming calls.


The event will be an unique opportunity to get to know all relevant information on the upcoming calls as well as to meet valuable partners from different technology sectors to exchange experiences and potentially create successful consortia.
