IncoNet CA supported the participation of Central Asian energy experts (sepcialists in solar technology, photovoltaic, heating and cooling, and ecological building material) in the Energy Days Graz, an international Energy Efficiency brokerage event. The event was organised by the ICS (Internationalisation Center Styria) in cooperation with its partner SFG (Styrian Business Promotion Agency).
On 13 January RCISD provided a Horizon 2020 training back-to-back with the brokerage event for the experts from Central Asia.
On the morning of 14 January, the Central Asian researchers participated in a Roundtable on 'Renewable Energy R&D' organised by Enterprise Europe Network, Eco World Styria and SFG (Styrian Business Promotion Agency). The participants from Central Asia and Austria introduced their institutions, outlined their specific fields of interest and presented projects for which they are looking for potential partners.
The workshop presentations addressed the following topics:
Some of the Central Asian experts had already participated in a previous similar training in Amsterdam (Aquamatch; November 2015). Their feedback appreciated the fact that the current training also included useful advice on how to find the best partners, how proposals are evaluated and how to tackle the most common problems in proposal writing.
The training closed with a ‘questions and answers’ and discussion session.
