EERA JP SG is growing in importance and is gathering more and more participants: it currently includes 20 Full Participants and 19 Associates representing 17 different European countries. In order to cover all the collaboration and communication needs among all members, a General Assembly (GA) will be held on an annual basis.
The main purposes of the GA are to increase visibility and networking opportunity for all JP SG members, also reporting of annual activities (technical and financial) and putting the basis for new joint activities and collaborative projects.
The 1st GA will give particular emphasis on relationships with EC and European industrial grid stakeholders and on technical topics, to be discussed in roundtables and specific panels (see the programme).
