Joint Call 2019 on Energy Storage Solutions (MICall19)

Basic Information

The European Joint Programming Platform ERA-Net Smart Energy Systems in collaboration with the global Mission Innovation Initiative is pleased to announce a Joint Call 2019 ("MICall19") for transnational Research, Development and Innovation projects on integrated energy storage solutions.

Network EN SGplusRegSys
Aim of the joint call The Joint Call 2019 ("MICall19”) for projects focuses on the development of integrated storage systems and will support solutions answering to identified challenges within this area. It is highly encouraged to identify and involve "need-owners” in the solution development answering to the specified challenge. The call will focus on challenge areas where different types of partners from different parts of society collaborate to offer solutions to existing energy systems. The Joint Call 2019 ("MICall19”) will support RDD projects that con-tribute to the development of sustainable, integrated storage solutions for both short- and long-term storage within areas such as electrical-, electrochemical-, material-, thermal- and mechanical storage.
