Founded by TU Graz staff in Graz, Austria, 19 November 2009 as a non-profit association of leading research and innovation organizations in sustainable energy innovation.
The vision of ESEIA is to be the first European address for sustainable energy systems innovation.
By 2030 we will have enabled Europe to reach her energy targets by contributing research, education, and training on innovative sustainable energy systems.
ESEIA´s expertise and activities focus on the creation of international full value chain partnerships, management of EC projects, organizations of interdisciplinary expert panels, entrepreneurial education and training, and awareness raising among European citizens.
- Enhancing the work of the ESEIA Working Groups to facilitate the realisation of projects: ‘cooperation works best when experts in a field take responsibility’;
- Reaching unrealized potential of all member organisations by recruiting new colleagues and bringing in novel ideas and approaches;
- Establishing clarity in the process: better communication among members, clear information to members and experts.
