Project summary

The development and adoption of renewable and sustainable forms of energy has become a major priority for Europe and an important theme in H2020. Research into new, energy-related technologies to reduce Europe’s reliance on non-renewable fossil fuels is a critical need, which requires new qualified people in areas such as renewable energy infrastructure management, new energy materials and methods, and smart buildings and transport.

Bioenergy is particularly relevant to the Work Programme, because it is at the crossroads of several key European policies, such as the Strategic Energy Technology Plan Roadmap on Education and Training (SET-Plan), the European Bioeconomy Strategy, and the European food safety and nutrition policies.

So far, technological development has concentrated on using crops and wood for fuel, energy and industrial products. These conventional bio-resources are, however, limited, and the use of non-conventional bio-resources, currently unused or underused, provides the best opportunity for the growth of the bioeconomy. However, European development in this priority field is failing to keep pace with the demand due to the lack of qualified personnel, the lack of cohesion and integration among stakeholders, and poorly developed links between professional training and the real needs of industry.

The Phoenix RISE project, comprising seven work packages, will address these issues by applying the partners’ complementary expertise and creating synergies between them through the targeted secondments of staff aimed at advancing research and innovation knowledge in bioenergy.

Phoenix is an international, interdisciplinary, cross-sectorial project, bringing together a total of 16 partners: 14 from the EU (5 companies and 9 academic organizations) and 2 third country academic partners. The Project will contribute to enhancing third country partners’ collective research excellence and creating new system of post graduate research training in key disciplines that support the development of bio-energy.

  1. The Staff member unit cost is a top-up allowance intended to support travel, accommodation and subsistence costs for the staff member during the secondment (the salary of the seconded staff is not covered by the EU contribution. Therefore, the beneficiaries and partner organizations are expected to continue paying their salary during their stay abroad).
  2. The Research, training and networking costs cover the costs of research and innovation related activities of the project, such as purchasing of consumables, laboratory costs, participation in conferences, workshops, coordination and review meetings, and networking activities.
  3. Management and indirect costs cover all general costs connected with the organization and implementation of the secondments (administrative and financial management, logistics, ethics, human resources, legal advice, documentation, etc.)

 

Results and Project Reporting

The Project reporting materials will include joint research papers based on the results of the secondments, which will be subsequently published in reviewed international journals; methods and recommendations for practical research application in training and industry; final report.
