European Network of Environmental Research Organisations


Staff meetings

These are the major added value of ENERO membership. Staff (management, senior researchers) of the environmental research organizations meet once or twice each year to exchange experiences and views on their internal organizational processes and interactions with stakeholders, clients and funding agencies. Meetings are often organized at the site of a member organization and include site and laboratory visits.  Latest meetings were at: 

  • CEAM, Valencia Spain:  with e.g. a visit to the outdoor atmospheric simulation chambers, (April 2023)
  • Brussels Belgium (June 2022)
  • ISSEP, Liège  Belgium with e.g. visits to laboratories for air quality monitoring, ecotoxicity and electro-sensitivity, (November 2021)
  • On line meetings in Covid period (May 2021 & October, September and May 2020)
  • Brussels (November 2019)
  • ENEA, Bologna Italy with visits to ENEA laboratories (May 2019)
  • Brussels Belgium (November 2018)
  • GIG, Katowice Poland with visits tot GIG laboratories and local coal mine (May 2018)

Working groups on environmental topics

ENERO members discuss how they can collaborate on environmental subjects with a final aim to submit joint research proposals (e.g. in EU Horizon Europe).

Travel grants for RTO junior researchers

One of the key issues of ENERO is to promote interaction and exchange of young scientists within the member RTOs. The ‘ENERO fellowship arrangement'  provides funding for travelling and accommodation for a young RTO scientist during a visit of 2 to 4 weeks to another member of the ENERO network.

ENERO Workshops

ENERO may organize workshops on focused environmental subjects to stimulate exchange of ideas and solutions between RTO members and representatives of the European Commission.  Latest workshop was on ‘How Enero makes GREEN DEAL alive’.
