Position Paper on Horizon 2020
Research and innovation are instrumental in creating jobs and business opportunities. However, if Europe is to remain leader in the global economy, it needs to step up investments in this area. This is particularly true in this period of time characterised by financial instability and growing societal challenges, such as the one of ‘secure, clean and efficient energy’. By supporting research and innovation in renewables, Europe will turn the energy challenge into an opportunity for economic growth and industrial development.
