The programme monitoring - the so called support team - focuses on the establishment of the ERA-Net SG+ Knowledge Community. This Knowledge Community is intended to foster collaboration between all stakeholders of the ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus initiative, its projects and beyond. The support team consists of RSE (Italy), Cleen (Finland) and its coordinator B.A.U.M.

ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus originated from an initiative of several European member states that developed a trans-national funding- and support programme together.
The main objective of ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus is to foster a sustainable cooperation structure between national and regional Smart Grids programmes in Europe. ERA-Net SG+ will foster the integration of Smart Grids system technologies, stakeholder adoption and market processes to support Europe in achieving its energy targets.
