Transnational Cooperation

Fossil Energy Coalition

FCT is a member of FENCO (2005-2009), an ERA-NET project where 19 European research agencies from 13 countries and 1 region seek best practice as a basis for cooperation in order to strengthen European research and to support the structuring of the European Research Area (ERA).

This particular project aims at setting up efficient trans-national cooperation in the field of fossil energy technologies towards zero emission power plants research funding. Also contributing to the EU Strategy, FENCO will allow the funding agencies to collate existing activities, compare future strategies and recommendations of consultive bodies and systematically explore opportunities for future collaboration.

One of the main objectives is the implementation of common strategies for funding transnational research projects in relevant topics in the area of energy technologies towards zero emission power plants.
