Webinar on Sustainable Process Industry through Resource and Energy Efficiency (SPIRE) coming up! - October 2018 calls encouraging EaP participation
EaP Plus is organising a webinar on Sustainable Process Industry through Resource and Energy Efficiency (SPIRE) on the 24 October 2018.
Work Programme 2018-2020 on Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology and Advanced Manufacturing and Processing under SPIRE calls particularly encourages international cooperation with Eastern Partnership countries (Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Belarus).
The second round of SPIRE calls open on the 16 October 2018 with a deadline on the 21 February 2019. They include:
- CE-SPIRE-04-2019: Efficient integrated downstream processes (IA)
Scope: Proposals submitted under this topic are expected to provide novel solutions for a deeper integration of upstream and downstream processing operations.
- CE-SPIRE-05-2019: Adaptation to variable feedstock through retrofitting (IA 50%)
Scope: Proposals need to cover, inter alia, the development of tools and methodologies to streamline and support retrofitting; find the most efficient operational input conditions to optimise the performances; facilitate and adapt the equipment towards a larger number and more diverse feedstock.
- DT-SPIRE-06-2019: Digital technologies for improved performance in cognitive production plants (IA)
Scope: Proposals need to develop new technologies to realise cognitive production plants, with improved efficiency and sustainability, by use of smart and networked sensor technologies, intelligent handling and online evaluation of various forms of data streams as well as new methods for self-organizing processes and process chains.
