European Coal in Transition: rising like a phoenix

The purpose of this high-level event co-hosted in the region of Asturias by EURACOAL and the European Research Executive Agency is to promote the activities of the EU Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS).

The workshop presented two of the largest projects funded under recent RFCS calls. It also examined the opportunities for other such projects under future “Big-Ticket” calls of the RFCS Research Programme. Participants heard from the European Commission about EU priorities for coal related research and why projects should be linked to a Just Transition. Project teams shared their experience on how to manage successful projects and explained the ambitious goals of their current work.

There were Q&A sessions and information on the RFCS annual calls and Big-Ticket opportunities in 2024-2025.
