R²D² participated at the 16th ETIP SNET Regional Workshop!

R²D² was part of the event which took place in Bilbao in a hybrid format.

The Workshop provided a unique opportunity to learn about R&I projects around Europe and contribute to the identification of R&I gaps, challenges and priorities. The agenda included a visit to Iberdrola’s Global Smart Grids Innovation Hub and Smart Mobility Lab (more information at the bottom).

The overall purpose of this event was to learn more about national and regional research, development and innovation (RDI) and how and if they are aligned to the RDI activities on the EU level and, specifically, to the ones identified in the ETIP SNET Implementation Plan 2022-2025 and that were the base of the High Levell Use Cases in the updated ETIP SNET Roadmap, expected by mid-February 2023.

To that end, the ETIP SNET invited the representatives of national and regional funding and support programmes from Western Europe (Spain, France, Portugal, Ireland and the UK) that met and discuss together with the EC, national funding authorities and ministries about RDI priorities and next funding programmes.
