Funded Projects

Managed by the Innovation and Experimentation Department, collaborative projects bring together several partners -public and private, academic and industrial ones- who work together on different topics. Each partner contributes according to its expertise. These projects accelerate access to workable outcomes by pooling skills, developing network, sharing risks and receiving financial support


Changing Energy Efficiency Technology Adoption in Household

01/12/2016-30/11/2019 - UE - H2020-EE-2016-RIA-IA - Visit here - H2020 CHEETAH
CHEETAH provides empirical evidence for the effectiveness of policies such as energy labels or subsidies for the adoption of energy-efficient technologies in households, relying on representative choice experiments in eight EU countries. Employing engineering-economic and macro-economic models, it also explores the effects of micro-level decision-making and of energy-efficiency policies on EU residential energy demand and on macro-economic variables until 2030.

Pioneering change in sustainable energy

Multiannual - UE - EIT KIC INNO ENERGY

At InnoEnergy, sustainability is about more than lowering emissions. True sustainability also means an industry that’s commercially viable, endlessly innovative, and highly competitive. InnoEnergy makes this possible by supporting sustainable energy innovations which provide industry with risk free, pioneering new technologies that reduce energy costs, increase system performance, decrease greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, create jobs, and increase competitiveness.
GEM is involved in different faculty programs of InnoEnergy:
EMINE summer school:
The MSc EMINE programme teaches tomorrow’s nuclear engineers how to address the key technical, social and environmental challenges faced by the industry today and in the future. Going beyond the scope of a traditional nuclear education, the programme helps tomorrow’s engineers understand nuclear power in the context of a diverse energy mix. 
The InnoEnergy PhD School supports research with impact. The program enable doctoral candidates to complement their research with essential entrepreneurial, innovation, business and personal skills. It strengthens connections between individual researchers across Europe and support cross-cultural collaboration and teamwork – and the program helps to bring research labs and universities closer to industry.
A broad-based education in a variety of key engineering disciplines. A focus on the inter-disciplinary aspects of the sustainable energy sector. And an in-depth understanding of the role of innovation and entrepreneurship in the future energy industry. MSc ENTECH enables you to think in new ways about energy, and gives you a solid foundation from which to meet tomorrow’s energy challenges.
Promoting entrepreneurship and innovating in healthy living and active ageing, with the aim to improve quality of life and healthcare across Europe
Multiannual - UE - EIT KIC INNO HEALTH
Demographic change is one of the main challenges European societies are facing today. The growth in the oldest segment of the population, and an increase in chronic diseases, is putting pressure on health and social care costs. EIT Health brings together leading healthcare companies across multiple industry sectors, public and private research centres, and top universities, to create a powerful network of partners with a clear mission: to accelerate entrepreneurship and innovation in healthy living and active ageing by providing Europe’s top talents with new opportunities and resources, for the benefit of all citizens.

Catching–Up along the Global Value Chain

01/05/2018-30/04/2022 - UE - H2020-MSCA-RISE-2017 - H2020 CATCHAIN: models, determinants and policy implications in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution

CatChain is a project built on a multidisciplinary and multi-sectoral exchange program focused on unravelling the process of Catching-up from different sectoral perspectives both at country and firm level. It analyses the role of business models in entering, learning and upgrading the Global Value Chain, aiming at recognising the determinants and challenges faced by Small and Medium Enterprises in being part of a globalised economy. The outcome of the project will be the definition of policy tools and frameworks to support effective policy-making actions in the implementation of Research and Innovation Smart Specialisation Strategy, with respect to the new agenda of Europe 2020, with a focus on low-income EU countries.


Social Innovation in Energy Transitions 

UE-H2020-LC-SC3-2018-NZE-CC - H2020 SONNET

Social Innovation in Energy Transitions: co-creating a rich understanding of the diversity, processes, contributions, success and future potentials of social innovation in the energy sector.

The overarching aim of SONNET is to develop a systematic understanding of the ways and conditions under which social innovation in the energy sector can contribute to the Energy Union Strategy and enable a clean energy transition of Europe’s energy system. To achieve this aim SONNET will explore the links between citizen involvement, social innovation and transformative changes within the energy system in order to develop evidence to examine its central hypothesis: social innovation in the energy sector induces new forms of social interactions, governance arrangements and business models, which enable greater civic engagement and empowerment as well as social acceptance to drive the clean-energy transition, making energy more secure, sustainable and affordable. The empirical focus will be on social innovation in urban areas located within low-carbon regions and carbon-in.
