Call for proposals

ETRERA 2020 PRIZE: Do you think your innovation project has been particularly successful? Promote it by participating to the ETRERA Prize competition!

ETRERA 2020 is organizing a call for proposals to showcase the most innovative projects and is inviting all the organisations to present their innovation projects that they consider to have been particularly successful in three fields of renewable energies: wind, solar and smart grids.

Why participate?

• The winners will be awarded the ETRERA_2020 PRIZE for the most innovative project in their category.
• The winners will be awarded a trip to Istanbul, Turkey, to receive the prize and present their project at the “Best practices” workshop.
• On top of that, the project will become a best practice of ETRERA 2020. The lessons learned that will emerge from the winners will be included in an “e-Handbook” that will be distributed to the research and industry sector active in renewable energy.
• ETRERA 2020 will also help to promote the winning organisations to potential investors for their new projects!

Applying is a very easy procedure: the application form can be filled directly online at the webpage and requires information that you normally should already have with you. Interested applications are invited to apply by 15 February 2014.

This competition is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to showcase your project, enhance your visibility and have more chances to attract potential research and industry partners for your organisation.
