Phoenix main features. Ensuring international research capacity


Phoenix partnership presented an overview of the project achievements during the last Progress Meeting in Brussels. Since its start, 24 experienced researchers, 16 early stage researchers, and 2 managerial secondees have taken part on the Phoenix project.

Under the People for the European bio-energy mix Phoenix project, 42 secondees have participated in staff exchanges until the end of 2018. The group is represented by 24 experienced researchers, 16 early stage researchers, and 2 managerial representatives from 6 European academic partners, 3 European business and 2 Third-Country Partners. The majority of the participants are young secondees aged between 25 and 35 years old.

Phoenix, that held its last Project Progress Meeting 14th of November in Brussels, brings together 16 partners from 14 European countries and two Third-countries partners to enhance its collective expertise in bio-energy and provide training at a post-graduate level.

To date, both hosting and sending institutions have ensured an equal number of women and men participating in exchange and training activities. According to the completed exchanges, 16 female out of 42 staff members have been involved in the project. This represents 41% of the total staff.

Phoenix project addresses the development of energy-related technologies to reduce Europe’s reliance on non-renewable fossil fuels. From renewable-energy infrastructure management to new energy materials and methods, Europe needs qualified people to lead the challenge.

To do so, Phoenix, project funded by H2020, continues promoting staff exchanges and training ensuring future research excellence and expertise in the development and adoption of renewable and sustainable forms of energy. The project is coordinated by eseia.
