Workshops

Two scientific workshops are planned to communicate and disseminate the project’s results, facilitate stakeholders’ engagement and integration by providing input to the project and widen project outreach and impact.

 

First Stakeholders Workshop

Workshop Overview

With the European Green Deal, the EU has set the objective to become a carbon neutral economy by 2050. To reach this ambitious goal, all economic sectors need to engage in a swift transition towards net zero carbon emissions. Research, development and innovation are key to enable a reliable emission pathway towards sustainable industry, as recalled also in the SPIRE[1] Roadmap. The Horizon 2020 COMPASsCO2 project intends to contribute to sustainability by focusing on a series of key innovations in terms of renewable energy system integration, material durability and process improvement, in line with the SPIRE action concepts. In order to exchange knowledge, validate results and identify areas for collaboration, a series of stakeholders workshops are envisaged throughout the project implementation (2020-2024).

The first stakeholder workshop has the purpose to introduce the project, discuss the main research activities conducted, and identify areas in which to cooperate with other projects, institutions or companies.

The main focus areas for this workshop are:

  1. the use of concentrating solar technology and its integration in the Brayton cycle;
  2. evaluation of state-of-the-art materials that could withstand the extreme operating conditions and
  3. research, development and testing of innovative materials that guarantee reliability and sustainability under harsh conditions.

The workshop is addressed to researchers, EU and international consortia working on similar topics, industry representatives and any other interested stakeholder willing to learn more about innovation for sustainability in industry.
