The main objective of the Energy & Climate Change Working Group is to act as a platform to discuss and share information on energy-related priorities and funding programmes, and in particular H2020. The Working Group also wants to provide opportunities for regional stakeholders to share experiences, and support matchmaking to create new partnerships and projects.

In the view of breaking silos between the different sectors, the WG will explore links and synergies with other areas in which energy plays a central role and cooperates with other ERRIN WGs on Transport, ICT, Smart cities and bioeconomy.
