In May 2018 the project will start with data gathering and analysis of national approaches, forming a common factual basis, preparing for an interactive KTP workshop taking place in Vienna in conjunction with the ISGAN ExCo meeting.
Building upon the results of the Knowledge Transfer Project (KTP) on Public Support to Smart Grid Research, Development and Innovation in 2017, involving six ISGAN countries, a follow-up project is now about to commence that aims to dive deeper into a few of the prioritized topics identified.
It will be the 4th KTP project within ISGAN since the concept was piloted in partnership with the Ministry of Energy (SENER) and the 21st Century Power Partnership (21CPP) in Mexico 2016. The KTP concept emphasizes needs-based learning and sharing amongst peers and is involves highly interactive workshops as well as analytical preparatory work on part of participants.
The project primarily targets government funding agencies working on a daily basis on the design and implementation of funding programs to support smart grid development at national or regional level.
In May 2018 the project will start with data gathering and analysis of national approaches, forming a common factual basis, preparing for an interactive KTP workshop taking place 18-19 October 2018 in Vienna, Austria, in conjunction with the ISGAN ExCo meeting.
