PEPR SPLEEN “Enhancing research in Europe to build a low-carbon industry”

The French government has launched low TRL long-term research programs within the framework of France 2030, a comprehensive investment plan that integrates research, innovation, skills development, demonstration, and large-scale deployment. One of the major areas of focus is the decarbonization of industry.

The purpose of the meeting « Enhancing research in Europe to build a low-carbon industry » is to present the research program « PEPR SPLEEN for Industry Decarbonization » and to align it with the challenges identified by the European Union and its associated policies.

The management of the whole value chain of innovation in the field of decarbonization technologies is at stake to keep European companies competitive at the international level. In recent months, a new European framework has been established (including the Green Deal Industrial Plan and the Net Zero Industry Act) to pave the way for a sustainable, decarbonised, and competitive industry in Europe. How can research communities support the declared ambition of achieving a climate-neutral EU industry by 2050 ?

The event, organized in the form of two roundtable discussions, will feature academic participants from universities and RTOs, industry representatives, members of the A-SPIRE association, and representatives from the European Commission. The key topics will include the industrial carbon value chain and the development of circular, fossil-free, and energy-efficient industrial systems.
