The AE Cardiff Hub had an active role in the Building Consortia for Energy 2018-2020 event organised by Vision 2020 along with Cardiff University at Wales House in Brussels on 5-6 May 2018. Cardiff University is the leader of the Energy Helix, one of fifteen active communities of researchers and companies hosted by Vision 2020. Every helix focuses on a different Horizon 2020 topic area and serves as a collaboration platform.
The purpose of the event was to facilitate building consortia and matchmaking between academia and industry for Horizon 2020 energy calls during the 2018-2020 work programme. Esther Dorado-Ladera, Executive Officer (Projects), presented the AE Cardiff Hub’s expertise and interests in the pitch session. She also took part in a consortium building session with delegates representing universities and companies from 7 European countries.
