Final Workshop on Enabling and Industrial Technologies in Horizon 2020, 4 July 2011

Resource efficiency and climate action challenge

The outcome of the consultation on future EU research and innovation funding was discussed at a major conference in Brussels on 10 June. This consultation exercise was mainly on simplification issues, funding mechanisms and other aspects of a general scope. However, many of the position papers received in many cases addressed issues relevant for the "Resource Efficiency and Climate Action" challenge.

This general consultation is being followed by thematic consultations. Stakeholder workshops have been organised for the "Resource Efficiency and Climate Action challenge" as follows:

- The first on 21 June 2011, addressing the scientific community

- The second on 15 July 2011, targeting government representatives.

The key messages from this exercise are available in summary reports prepared by an external Rapporteur.
