The EUREC College of Members’ meeting, which took place last December 2015, decided to open EUREC membership to industry members.
This is part of the EUREC strategy 2016-2018 which aims at fostering partnership with the renewable energy industry along three lines:
- Involvement of the renewable energy industry in EU co-funded project proposals, developed by EUREC and its members
- Cooperation with renewable energy industry associations, via participation to regular meetings, and support to joint statements on upcoming legislative proposals in the area of renewable energy and energy efficiency
- Direct involvement of research-oriented companies in the work of EUREC
Currently, EUREC’s membership base is mainly composed of private and public research centres, as well as universities. A limited number of companies are also direct members. EUREC’s strategic direction for the period 2016-2018 targets private companies with a strong focus on research activities in the area of renewable energies, in order to strengthen its membership base.With this initiative, EUREC aims at confirming its role as the voice of renewable energy research (both science-based and industry-based) in Europe.
