Our portfolio: 21 Renewable Energy Research & Innovation Projects
Projects in the LEAP-RE Portfolio will focus on 6 priority themes. These roadmaps focus on key topics in order to make the development of renewable energy sustainable and efficient: innovation priorities, smart-grid and off-grid systems, productive and domestic uses, access to energy, recycling, etc.
A first set of 8 projects were selected to start in early 2020 when the LEAP-RE programme started, which follow-up coordination is ensured by Politecnico di Milano (Italy) and Strathmore University (Kenya). 13 additional projects funded via an open call started in 2022. Additional projects will be selected to complete the portfolio thanks to an additional open call for projects that closed in September 2022.
These calls for research and innovation projects are funded by 15 European and African research and innovation funding agencies and by the EU. The coordination of the calls is ensured jointly by the ANR (France) and the MESRS (Algerian Ministry of Research).
