The 12 projects of the first call of the European program MSCA-COFUND Got Talent Energy, GET, in which universities, research centers and companies as Repsol, Cepsa, Iberdrola, Atos, Optiva Media, Orion High Technologies, Soticol Robotics Systems, Asti or Nielsen participate, were presented on November 22 at the Faculty of Economics, Business and Tourism of the University of Alcalá de Henares.
The IMDEA Energy Institute is involved in 4 of the projects on the following topics:
- Energy transition, project ‘Clean energy and low-carbon transitions in the XXI century: economic and policy analysis’ for which a researcher from the Karlsruher Institut für Technologie, KIT, of Germany has joined the Systems Analysis Unit.
- Artificial photosynthesis, projects ‘ArtifUEL: Artificial Photosynthesis for the production of solar fuels and chemicals’ and ‘“Nanostructured Semiconductor-Metal Complex based Hybrid Photocatalyst for Solar Water Splitting and CO2 Reduction’ for which researchers from the Heriot-Watt University of Edinburgh, UK and the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research, CSIR, of India, respectively has joined the Photoactivated Processes Unit.
- Bioplastics production, project ‘Catalityc production of green piezoelectric biopolymers, Greenpehs’ project in which a researcher from the University degli Studi di Perugia, Italy, collaborates occasionally.
Prior to the presentations of the projects, the meeting of the Program Steering Committee was held, in which the calls and their impact were monitored. The projects, apart from technological advancement, encourage cooperation among universities, R&D centers, companies and other leading entities in their respective fields.
