"Towards International Cooperation"
Joint Brazilian – ELECTRA Smart Grids Workshop
November 11-12, 2015 Florianópolis, Brazil
An important objective of ELECTRA is to establish the bases for International Cooperation activities with extra-EU countries in the field of Smart Grids. Special attention is devoted to promote the involvement of emerging economies, namely B.R.I.C.S. countries.
In this frame the joint Brazilian-ELECTRA Smart Grids Workshop has been organized in cooperation with INESC P&D Brazil and Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC). The workshop (see the programme) will give the opportunity to present ELECTRA IRP results both to Academia and industry representatives. In turn, presentations dealing with on-going smart grids Brazilian projects and future trends will help in identify topics of interest for potential joint R&D activities.
