NEXT PLEASE - Roll up, roll up. This is the latest offering in the drive to accelerate key technology, from concept to market readiness.

 

 

Horizon 2020 was the flagship research and innovation engine for the European Commission. From 2021, Horizon Europe replaces the old system, with shiny new policies, boasting rules that are designed to garner innovation that would not have been contemplated under H2020.

 

We will review progress, that may be measured by a reversal in climate warming, since 35% of the €100,000,000,000 billion budget is geared to projects aimed at tackling the melting of the ice caps, extinction of species - and all that goes with it. Meaning that €35,000,000,000 billion euros is to be spent in a last ditch attempt to cool the planet.

 

British entities may not benefit from being included in consortiums or as a single entity applicant because of Brexit complications.

MISSION BOARD CHAIRS

The Commission is established five ‘mission boards’. Their first deliverable will be to propose concrete targets and timelines for each mission by the end of 2019. They will be chaired by the following outstanding individuals who will contribute with their experience, authority and credibility: 

1. Ms Connie Hedegaard, former European Commissioner for Climate Action, for the mission on ‘Adaptation to Climate Change including Societal Transformation’


2. Professor Harald zur Hausen, Nobel Prize Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, for the mission on ‘Cancer’


3. Mr Pascal Lamy, former Trade Commissioner and Director-General of the World Trade Organisation, for the mission on ‘Healthy Oceans, Seas, Coastal and Inland Waters’


4. Professor Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz, former Mayor of Warsaw, for the mission on ‘Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities’


5. Mr Cees Veerman, former Dutch Agriculture Minister, for the mission on ‘Soil Health and Food’. 

 

 

 

 

CONTACTS

 

....

 

 

 

 

Hydrogen powered electric buses are becoming very popular. With exchange refuelling using high pressure gas cartridges, or liquid hydrogen cartridges, coaches and trucks might have unlimited ranges. This is sure to be a topic of discussion at the forthcoming World Hydrogen Congress in Paris, 22 September 2020. Not long now.

 

 

Airbus E-Fan electric small plane

 

JULY 2015 - Two electric aircraft crossed the English Channel, just a day apart. The performance of the Airbus E-Fan could be doubled using hydrogen batteries.

 

 

Electric hybrid, the Elizabeth Swann, solar and wind powered cross channel contender

 

CHANNEL HOPPER - Electric ferries and river boats like the proposal above, could supplement solar and wind power, with hydrogen batteries to boost performance and reduce transit times, with refuelling at each end of a journey - but also with renewable performance of around 10 knots in reserve. Many fleet operators are now looking to hydrogen as a long term solution. Hydrogen batteries could be stacked for such endeavour.
