Ms Anette Jahn (Head of Sector  EASME) then presented recommendations for applicant:





During the afternoon, many presentations indirectly linked to the ceramic industry (EE11-Deep renovation of buildings, EE25-Energy efficiency services). However, three Energy Efficiency topics have clear applications:

  • EE-14-2016: Construction skills 
  • EE-15-2017: Increasing capacities for actual implementation of energy efficiency measures in industry and services
  • EE-17-2016: Valorisation of waste heat in industrial systems (SPIRE)

The deadline for submitting proposals in response to the 2016 calls is 21 January 2016.
