EIRIE – the European Interconnection for Research Innovation & Entrepreneurship, is an initiative hosted by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission with the ambition of creating an interactive meeting point for all European energy system actors that contribute to achieving a carbon-free system by 2050.
Conceived within the frame of the PANTERA project, the EIRIE platform has been developed to be a sustainable multifunctional platform and a single point of reference for the EU Research & Innovation family in the field of Smart Energy Systems and technologies, in support of the energy transition and the low carbon economy.
Through EIRIE, the aim is to bridge the gaps that currently exist in the energy field in Europe between Member States, by bringing together data, information, knowledge and lessons learned from successful partnerships being national, regional or European.
The platform users will get access to information on potential funding and consortium building, projects data collection (results and outcomes, best practices, reports and deliverables, etc.), references to standards and regulations, all of these searchable via an easy-to-use search tool.
The key objective of the EIRIE platform is to connect and bring together the European Union’s Research & Innovation community in one place, to enable collaboration, increase wider interest and give access to all the resources needed to play an active role within the European research community.
Furthermore, to ensure the success and sustainability of the platform, the PANTERA consortium is working closely with JRC (EC Joint Research Centre), under the guidance of DG Energy of the European Commission, to develop EIRIE as a linked extension of their Smart Energy Systems platform. The platform will also be serving the needs of ETIP SNET (ETIP Smart Networks for Energy Transition) and be in close collaboration with well-known platforms in Europe such as the ERA-Net SES (ERA-Net Smart Energy Systems), DERlab and Mission Innovation.
