BRIDGE is an initiative established by the European Commission in 2014 to bring together energy projects, funded through the Horizon framework programmes. The purpose is to create a structured view of cross-cutting issues and identify roadblocks to innovation.
Apart from helping shape EU policy work, BRIDGE is also providing a valuable platform for projects to exchange knowledge and ideas, get inspiration and collaborate. Presently, the community consists of 58 projects with more than 1000 organisations participating.
