ASSET - A holistic and scalable solution for research, innovation, and education in energy transition- is a Horizon 2020 project, financed under the topic LC-SC3-CC5 "Research, innovation and educational capacities for energy transition".

ASSET´s goal is twofold:

1) To create a sustainable and scalable ecosystem including all energy transition and education stakeholders:

  • a) Companies from the energy sector
  • b) Universities and training actors
  • c) Authorities and policy makers
  • d) Society

2) To deliver the framework and means for the continuous collaborative definition of the knowledge-competencies-skills required for the energy transition and for continuous resource pooling to efficiently educate/train large numbers of people in diverse and interdisciplinary topics and carry out research and innovation activities.

ASSET will also involve actors that can contribute to fuel interdisciplinary research combining SSH disciplines and capable of reaching out to the society to create the new generation of energy-sensitive citizens that are part of the energy transition mission. And second, to deliver the framework and means for continuous collaborative definition of the knowledge-competencies-skills required for the energy transition and for continuous resource pooling to efficiently educate/train large numbers of people in diverse and interdisciplinary topics and carry out research and innovation activities.
