The European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) aims to accelerate the development and deployment of low-carbon technologies that will deliver affordable and sustainable clean energy to consumers. It seeks to improve new technologies from an integrated approach and bring down costs by coordinating national research efforts to accelerate delivering EU 2030 and 2050 targets.
This year's SET-Plan Conference will take stock on progress towards the SET-Plan priorities, following the finalization of the relevant Implementation Plans and aims to identify how research and innovation efforts, at European and national level, contribute to the EU's energy transition. It will highlight the importance of making synergies and developing partnerships among public and private actors to fund and implement R&I activities that can create a real impact. The Conference will offer a versatile framework that includes plenary sessions and relevant side events to examine and discuss different views for a successful energy transition.
The 11th SET-Plan Conference, under the auspices of the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, will take place from November 20th to 21st, 2018 in the conference venue Messe Wien in Vienna, Austria. It is co-organised by the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology on behalf of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology, the Austrian Federal Ministry of Sustainable and Tourism and the European Commission.
