The new revision of the BRIDGE brochure, the 2023 edition, has been published early this week. The brochure provides a detailed description of the activities of the EC’s cooperative initiative and the developments it underwent in the last two years.
This new and updated report gives a detailed description of EU-supported projects through Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe programmes in the areas of Smart Grid, Energy Storage, Islands, and Digitalisation across the timespan 2015-2023. It contains two-page factsheet profiles for each project. The publication provides all the necessary information to explore the context, scope and impact of all the projects developed, the consortium partners, the geographical coverage of the projects and the funding received.
BRIDGE is a cooperation group involving 155 projects in total (among which 97 are ongoing and 58 completed as of 1 July 2023) involving 1510 organisations from 39 countries for a total accumulated EC funding to all projects of 1303 M€ in the areas of Smart Grid, Energy Storage, Islands, and Digitalisation funded under the Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe program over the last eight years (2015-2023).
This collaborative initiative reveals an average growth of 45% per biennium. The number of projects has experienced remarkable growth of 546% from the beginning of the period 2016-2017 until 2022-2023. The updated brochure reports 147 projects (ongoing and ended) that provided the necessary information to the BRIDGE Secretariat for analysis.
BRIDGE aims to create a structured view of cross-cutting issues which are encountered in the demonstration projects and may constitute an obstacle to innovation. The BRIDGE process fosters continuous knowledge sharing amongst projects, thus allowing them to deliver conclusions and recommendations about the future exploitation of the project results with a single voice.
