"The INRES project will aim to enhance the integration and the cooperation among three European insular regions, Canary Islands (Spain), Crete (Greece) and Samsø (Denmark) in the development of their regional RES policies and strategies through the establishment of a mutual learning process and collaborative relationships among regional research-driven clusters. The consortium, formed of 10 partners, targets the development of an inter-regional strategy, in the view of EC recommendations and support, for developing the take up of innovative measures, included in the regional energetic plans, that spin towards new collaboration among regional players especially SMEs, involved in the dynamics of the RES energy technology by sustained transfer to local players, in the framework of a higher local economic efficiency and environment safeguard. Considering the previous experience in regional policies and networking, the project partners have decided to form the consortium based on the idea of putting together regional research-driven clusters dealing with renewable energy concerns and gathering entities from governmental, research and industrial side in order to address energy-related problems and create a common strategy for the development of renewable energy technologies, supporting finally the self-sustainability of the islands."
