The ultimate goal of the ERA NET is to develop transnational joint activities ensuring that results from the analysis of national RD&D programs are used. Gaps will be eliminated, existing strengths will be enhanced by competitively awarded Europe-wide RD&D projects.
The Geothermal ERA-NET participants' primary role as governmental entities provides a unique opportunity to engage - with high priority and in concerted manner throughout Europe – principal stakeholders across the geothermal energy value chain ranging from grant-receiving members of the research community to industry actors that develop and deploy geothermal technologies. As funding agencies and governmental administration, the ERA-NET participants can be one of the lead drivers towards European cooperation.
