The Research Committee manages a collaborative research strategy for the ERA partnership.
Consisting of two to three members from each of the ERA partners, the Research Committee focuses on collaborative research that builds on and strengthens the energy research, training and enterprise profile of each of the ERA member institutions.
The Research Committee leads the strategy for the delivery of science, innovation and impact from the ERA facilities including research proposals, promotion of research collaborations across the partners and defining how ERA facilities will become true national research assets.
The Committee also develops ‘Big Ideas’ – these are areas of research around which new ideas are suggested by ERA partners. The Big Ideas propose the development of projects which align with national strategies and bring together expertise from across the ERA partnership.
