About Eurogia


EUROGIA is the EUREKA Cluster that supports and promotes international partnerships developing innovative projects in low carbon energy technologies. EUROGIA is a bottom up, industry-driven, market-oriented programme which addresses all areas of energy mix, from renewable energy to efficiency, and reduction of carbon footprint. The aim of the Cluster is to bring clean energy and energy efficiency to the population and industry.

Our Vision:

Eurogia is the only Industry Community to foster Low Carbon Technology Development based on an International Public Private Innovation Centric Partnership.

Our Mission:

To lead the energy transition to a more sustainable path, through technology changes.

From 2004 until mid-2008, EUROGIA was a EUREKA Cluster focusing on the commercialisation of safe, cost effective and environmentally friendly solutions in the Oil and Gas energy sector.

It became EUROGIA+ in 2008, a EUREKA Cluster for Low-Carbon Energy Technologies after the White Book was re-written in cooperation with Regional Clusters dedicated to New Technologies for Energy.

From June 2013 onwards, EUROGIA continues its activities by running the EUROGIA2020 programme, following the main targets of EUROGIA+ with a more comprehensive Technology Roadmap. 

From July 2021 onwards, EUROGIA will continue its activities by running the EUROGIA2030 programme, following the “5D” strategy objectives.

The new organization of Eureka Clusters will pave the way to a smart, sustainable, Energy efficient and carbon free Europe with introduction and implementation of new technologies such as AI, IOT, Blockchain, etc.

In this respect, Eurogia cluster will foster the Energy transition in 5 different Dimensions. Our so-called “5D” Strategy which can be found on the Eurogia2030 Technology Roadmap.
