VUB TechTransfer organizes an information session on the Joint R&D project call (JRD) with the following theme: Towards Carbon Neutral Energy. Jonathan Duplicy (scientific advisor @Innoviris) will present the call and give more details about it, Qing Cai  (VUB TechTransfer) will explain the support that VUB TechTransfer can offer. After the presentations, there will be time for Q&A.

Towards Carbon Neutral Energy

Belgium and the EU aims to be climate-neutral by 2050 – an economy with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions . This ambitious objective is at the heart of the European Green Deal and in line with the Union’s commitment to global climate action under the 2015 Paris Agreement. This transition places energy in a central role, as it is today responsible for more than 75% of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions. 
A number of pathways and priorities to reach this objective have been identified; among them research and innovation will play a key role. The Brussels Region through Innoviris is willing to contribute its share and therefore welcomes expressions of interest for innovative project ideas that will reduce the carbon footprint of energy production, distribution/storage and increase efficiency, without inducing a rebound effect on the global energy consumption.
