The long awaited Horizon 2020 legislation and its work programmes for 2014 and 2015 were published in December 2013. Cerame-Unie has been involved in the process as a member of A.SPIRE, which governs the private part of the Public Private Partnership SPIRE. Ceramic companies and RTOs presented their initial ideas at a SPIRE brokerage event in October and during the PPP Infodays on 16-17 December 2013.
A brokerage event on the first call of the PPP on Energy Efficient Buildings, coordinated by the European Commission and the Energy Efficient Buildings Association (E2BA), also took place in the framework of the Infodays. Cerame-Unie is a proud member of E2BA.
