NER 300 is one of the world’s largest funding programmes for highly innovative low-carbon energy demonstration projects, although it is not funded by the EU budget but by resources coming from the EU Emission Trading Scheme (ETS). The programme is conceived as a catalyst for the demonstration of environmentally safe carbon capture and storage (CCS) and innovative renewable energy (RES) technologies on a commercial scale within the European Union. The programme (about EUR 2.1 billion) funds 38 projects in 19 EU countries.

The GENTLE (Graduate and Executive Nuclear Training and Lifelong Education) project brings together leading European academic and research institutions with the goal to set up an executive learning programme, strongly supported by industry stakeholders. In this 6 week course you will learn the physics behind nuclear science, how to gain energy from nuclear fission, how nuclear reactors operate safely, and the life cycle of nuclear fuel: from mining to disposal. In the last part of the course, we will focus on what matters most in the public debate: the economic and social impact of nuclear energy but also the future of energy systems.

Innovation is not a phenomenon that occurs in a vacuum, it is intimately linked to local conditions and eco-systems and one of its key drivers is the complex interaction between the economic, scientific, academic, human and intellectual capital stock of a given area or region.

The Macro-Regional Innovation Week intends to focus on the exchange of best practices and knowledge among local and international policy and decision makers, academics, financial actors and various types of innovation and technology transfer practitioners.
