The ENTRUST project has been recently profiled in ‘Building on Ireland’s Energy Research Performance’, a joint publication from the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) and Enterprise Ireland, which showcases academic and industry exemplars successfully leading and participating in EU funded energy projects.
Over the past year, Irish energy research projects have secured €18m in EU funding, with the ENTRUST project showcased as one of these notable successes. At its launch today the SEAI called on Irish energy research groups to build upon these recent success as new funding rounds become open from the EU's Research and Innovation programme, Horizon 2020 (H2020).
ENTRUST was highlighted as a successful case of inter-disciplinary research and UCC's Niall Dunphy was a guest speaker at the launch of the publication, where he shared his experiences of FP7 and H2020 with a particular focus on experience of integrating social science disciplines with those from
engineering and science.
