The United States and the European Union (EU) are seeking to accelerate the transition to low-carbon energy systems, including power generation from variable solar and wind technologies.

Following the signing of a collaboration arrangement between the JRC and the US Department of Energy earlier this year, a workshop is being organised at the JRC's facilities in Ispra on 28-29 September 2016.

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.

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.

The JRC is organising a workshop on the use of microsimulation modelling for fiscal policy analysis in Seville. The aim of the workshop is to gather policy makers and leading economists from the US and Europe who will provide examples of how microsimulation models are used for fiscal policy analysis in their institutions. Speakers will explain whether the models are open-source and made available to the research community.

The STREST project

Critical Infrastructures (CIs) provide essential goods and services for modern society; they are highly integrated and have growing mutual dependencies. Recent natural events have shown that cascading failures of CIs have the potential for multi-infrastructure collapse and widespread societal and economic consequences.
