Renewable energy technologies, storages, smart electric grids, energy efficiency and more, are some of the key segments which will help in massive decarburization.

University actors in the KT are at the core of the innovation web, where enhanced capacities, high degree of integration and leadership are prerequisites for scaling up innovation performance.
