G. Centi, President of ERIc aisbl and coordinator of DECADE project, presented the project results at the
SUNCOCHEM WEBINAR - Photocatalytic synthesis for a carbon-neutral production of fuels and chemicals
on-line, April 28th – 15.00 – 17.00 CEST

SUNERGY aims at becoming a large European Research and Innovation initiative working towards the conversion and storage of renewable energy into fossil-free fuels and chemicals. It builds on two initiatives funded under Horizon 2020: SUNRISE and ENERGY-X. They were selected by the European Commission to prepare for FET Flagship status, a billion-euro programme which identifies "visionary, science-driven, large-scale research initiatives addressing grand scientific and technological challenges".
G Centi, ERIC aisbl President, is part of the Board of SUNERGY, and actively contributes to

  • Advocacy
  • Funding Opportunities and Preparation of new proposals
  • Strategic R&I Agenda

G. Centi represented also SUNERGY at the recent Electrocatalyss Summit (April 14th, 2021)

G. Centi, ERIC aisbl President, one of the invited speakers at the workshop "Decarbonising European industry: hydrogen and other solutions" to present the status on "Close the carbon cycle through substitution of fossil fuels".  The workshop has been organized by STOA (Panel for the Future of Science and Technology) of the European Parliament.

Gabriele Centi, President of ERIC aisbl and honorary professor at Tianjin University of Science & Technology (China), held a plenary conference at the 2n Forum on Clean Energy in Dalian (China) from 24 to 25 August 2018. This event, among the main events in China on the issue of clean energy, and which was broadcast by 26,000 politicians, managers, engineers and researchers in the area, aims to explore the new directions for future energy in China, from an international perspective.
The conference of prof. Centi has focused on the possibilities for a chemical and energy that does not use fossil fuels to mitigate climate change, an issue that today sees China at the forefront of the new strategic development plan. For this reason, the considerable attention to these aspects on the political-managerial, as well as technical level. The opportunity was a significant possibility for the ERIC aisbl to strengthen its visibility and international role and relations with China, with benefits for scientific and project relationships of the ERIC members.
