This breakthrough decision opens up new opportunities for innovative, cross-sectoral activities and stimulates solution-oriented approaches. Nevertheless, collaboration and innovation in energy research can only lead to a successful clean energy transition with the strong acceptance and commitment of the whole of Europe. Implementation Working Group Deep Geothermal Support Unit, SUPEERA and EERA aisbl are jointly addressing this issue by giving the representatives of the EU13 countries (Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia) and Greece and Portugal, the opportunity to gain more knowledge about the initiatives favoring their countries' institutions and to find a way forward for strengthening the cooperation in the EU.   Representatives of research institutions and universities from these countries will be informed about the EU's Widening initiative, EEA and Norwegian grants, and the EERA community and its work.  The webinar will also present the success stories and positive changes achieved through the cooperation.  At the end of the event, measures and ways to further integrate the countries into the EU Clean Energy Transition and to facilitate communication and information exchange will be discussed.  The webinar is aimed at academics, industry, policy makers, representatives of citizens' initiatives and consultancies in the energy sector, especially from the EU13 countries (and Greece and Portugal).
