In their second funding period, the SCCERs will be engaging in a number of joint activities. The initiative for this came from the centres themselves. They want to increase cooperation between the centres and exploit existing synergies. The CTI is providing CHF 7.7 million to support this undertaking between 2017 and 2020.
The work of the SCCERs makes a vital contribution to energy research, in the form of data from measurements and experiments or from demonstrator installations. Synergies can be exploited by harmonising and linking these activities. The result is more than merely the sum of the individual parts.
The centres developed the six planned joint activities in the course of 2016. The projects were submitted to the former CTI Board, which approved them in mid-November; they will be carried out in the second half of the 2017–2020 funding period. A number of implementation partners will be involved in each of the joint activities along with two or more SCCERs.
