The MACLAB-PV project aims to optimize the scientific, technological, demonstrative and innovative infrastructures and capacities existing in the participating regions, pursuing excellence in research and innovation in the sector of renewable energies and energy efficiency. This project will foster the creation of a more specialized scientific community that can respond effectively to the real needs of the sector within the cooperation area, improving their international competence and providing a greater implementation of renewable energies.
Within the framework of the project, actions will be carried out to improve the R&D&i capabilities of the partners and participating regions, promoting the implementation of new lines of research that respond to the needs of their respective socio-economic sectors. In order to implement these new R&D&i lines, resources will be invested in the technological improvement of laboratories and scientific infrastructures on renewable technologies. Moreover, the creation of new R&D&i field units on energy efficiency will be promoted and teaching tools on renewable technologies, savings and energy efficiency will be designed and manufactured. In addition, technical and scientific advice will be provided to public authorities, responsible bodies and citizens. In parallel with these proceedings, capacity-building and technological transfer actions will be carried out among the research community, universities and public administrations. Outreach and awareness-raising actions about the regional scientific activity, as well as actions targeting the exchange and joint training of research and teaching staff, using improved and implemented R&D&i infrastructures.
