EIT KIC Policy Reports

InnoEnergy has developed credible future technology cost models for four renewable energy generation technologies using a consistent and robust methodology. The purpose of these cost models is to explore and track the impact of innovations on the levelised cost of energy (LCOE) in a consistent way across the four technologies. This report examines how technology innovation is anticipated to reduce the cost of energy from European offshore wind farms up to 2030.

This publication is a Science for Policy report by the EIT Climate-KIC and the Joint Research Centre (JRC) and has been prepared in the context of the technical collaboration agreement between these organisations. The scientific output expressed does not imply a policy position of the European Commission. Neither the European Commission nor any person acting on behalf of the Commission is responsible for any use that might be made of this publication.

The objective of this study report is to provide an analysis and set of scenarios as a tool for policy shapers on the future of digital infrastructures and personal data governance. Can we combine European value-based regulation with vibrant innovation for a sovereign, secure and trusted European society?

The European Commission expects AI to significantly improve the lives of EU citizens and bring major benefits to society and economy through better healthcare, more efficient public administration, safer transport, a more competitive industry, and sustainable farming (European Commission, 2018b).

In Europe, as in the rest of the world, digital innovation and transformation foreshadow the coming of what has been called the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The concept of Industry 4.0 has emerged to describe this digital transformation in industry in all sectors. Integrating digital innovations in their business strategies is an essential means of creating value and digital integration and connection of systems may create seamless digitalised value chains.

This document contains the official information regarding activities done during 2020 related to Industrial Policy for the European Battery Industry, which refers to the complete value chain from mining for raw materials and all the way through to recycling of used batteries. In this document, there will be specific focus on the general activities analyzed on a high level to show the progress during the year 2020. Furthermore, four examples of actions linked to industrial policy for the European Battery Industry are described.

European policy makers have been working to enhance quality of life in the places we live and work through the development of new mobility services and technologies. MaaS is central to achieve this objective. MaaS is a new concept aiming to provide passengers with flexible, efficient, user oriented and ecological mobility services covering multiple modes of transport on a none‐stop shop principle (Kamargiannietal.,2018). It offers multimodal route planners and different services under one fare and on the same ticket.
