SMARTSPEND is a 3-year EU-funded project which ended on 30 November 2021. It aimed to find new ways to coordinate and increase investments in clean energy Research & Development.

The SMARTSPEND project was supporting the execution of the Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan) of the European Commission.

SMARTSPEND has organised conferences to help innovators in clean energy access risk finance from public and private sources. The 3rd edition of its Access to Risk Finance Conference and SMARTSPEND Closing Event took place on 18 November 2021.

SMARTSPEND has also reported on the synergies in different technologies’ R&D plans, and on the ways that sectors should organise themselves to access EU funding efficiently.
