standing-groupds-and-committees Experts' Group on R&D Priority Setting and Evaluation (EGRD)

Energy R&D in innovative technologies is at the heart of meeting future energy challenges. Countries’ capacity to develop effective national R&D strategies and programmes through the use of well founded tools is becoming increasingly important. The International Energy Agency's Experts' Group on R&D Priority Setting and Evaluation was created to promote development and refinement of analytical approaches to energy technology analysis; to R&D priority setting; and to assessment of benefits from R&D activities. Senior experts engaged in national R&D efforts collaborate on current issues through international workshops, information exchange, networking and outreach. The results and recommendations support CERT, feeds into IEA analysis, and provide a global perspective to national R&D efforts.
