The purpose of preparatory projects is to develop project ideas in a more specific and focused direction, to examine the need for the project outputs among end users and stakeholders and to build up transnational partnerships. This means that ideally preparatory projects conclude with the presentation of a main project application by the end date of a call for main project proposals.
One of the ten successful proposals, project CHANGE, will see WiSAR Lab, ATU Donegal, collaborate with Swedish and Finnish academia in driving societal growth in renewable energy and energy storage under Priority 2 – Climate change adaptation and resource sufficiency.
CHANGE aims to identify countries, regions and key decision-makers for cooperation, to jointly develop a new NPA project with the objective to identify, develop and deploy solutions supporting the adoption of renewable energy systems and sustainable energy use.
