The Fossil Energy Coalition Conference
From FENCO-ERA to FENCO-NET
3rd & 4th November 2010
FENCO-ERA is a European Research Area Network with the overall aim of networking the national R&D activities in the field of fossil fuels energy conversion and CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS).
It was the aim of FENCO-ERA to strengthen European research skills in this area and Europe’s ability to compete in world markets against increasingly fierce international competition, through the coordination between national funding agencies and governments and the enhancement of the cooperation between National RTD Programmes.
A key deliverable of FENCO-ERA is to provide the basis for a durable European network of funding agencies for the development of zero emission power plant technologies. This has now been achieved with the formation of FENCO-NET which is being formally launched at this conference. FENCO-NET intends to complement and support the SET Plan of the European Commission.
The event is being held in the Cinquantenaire (Royal Museums of Art and History), Brussels and a draft agenda for the conference can be downloaded here. Participants at the conference will include: Public Authorities and Agencies, Industrial and Other Stakeholders, NGOs.
