- CTA, FUNSEAM, CIRCE Foundation and the Polytechnic University of Madrid are the Spanish partners of this initiative funded by the EU under the Interreg-Sudoe programme.
The European Tr@nsnet project has just started with the aim of contributing to the energy transition by defining a new model of university living lab, i.e., a real test bed for open innovation, which is transferable to companies. Technological Corporation of Andalusia (CTA), the Foundation for Energy and Environmental Sustainability (FUNSEAM), the CIRCE Foundation and the Polytechnic University of Madrid are the Spanish entities that participate together with 4 other European partners from France and Portugal.
Funded by the Interreg-Sudoe programme with a budget of €1,4 million, this interdisciplinary and cross-border project will help researchers and stakeholders exchange knowledge and experiences on methodologies, experiments and technology demonstrators related to research on energy transition.
The new living lab model will be based on existing technological demonstrators (Smart Light, IoT, electric and thermal generation) and the creation of new demonstrators (second life of electric batteries, water cycle and mobility), allowing to test and validate new technological developments and business models.
Tr@nsnet project is a continuation of Interreg-Sudoe 2016-2019 Tr@ansener project that aimed to promote innovation in European regions in the field of technologies for electricity.
The consortium is made of 8 partners from 3 EU countries:
- Coordinator: Toulouse III Paul Sabatier University (France)
- Polytechnic University of Madrid (Spain)
- University of Lisboa (Portugal)
- University of Beira Interior (Portugal)
- University of La Rochelle (France)
- Foundation for Energy and Environmental Sustainability – FUNSEAM (Spain)
- CIRCE Foundation (Spain)
- CTA (Spain)
