Extended Partnerships

Extended Partnerships (PE) are research programs characterized by an interdisciplinary, holistic and problem solving approach, carried out by widespread networks of universities, public research bodies, and other public and private entities, in response to the PNRR call, Mission 4 Component 2 Investment 1.3 – Creation of “Partnerships extended to universities, research centers and companies for the financing of basic research projects”. PEs are engaged in research activities, highly qualified and internationally recognised, hopefully organized in a consortium structure. These programs have the ambition to contribute to strengthening research supply chains at national level and promoting their participation in European and global strategic value chains.

PE0000021 / PE2 – Network 4 Energy Sustainable Transition (NEST)

The objectives of the energy transition towards carbon neutrality that our country aims to achieve by 2050, following national and community program lines, require following a program of rapid reduction in the consumption of fossil fuels in the coming years with the full adoption of renewable energy sources, in the civil, industrial and transport sectors. The challenges of the energy transition cannot be addressed only by current technologies but require the development of new knowledge that stimulates the development of new technologies. The project program “NEST, Network for Sustainable Energy Technologies” within the PE program “Green Energy for the Future” aims to connect the main university laboratories and research groups and the main national research bodies, identifying interdisciplinary skills in order to develop technologies for the conversion and use of renewable sources which should be sustainable, both from an environmental and social point of view, and resilient for the production and distribution of energy, being less subject to the risks deriving from the current supply based on fossil fuels, basically oil and natural gas.
