The European Industrial Initiatives (EII) are joint large scale technology development projects between academia, research and industry.
Goal of the EIIs
The goal of the EIIs is to focus and align the efforts of the Community, Member States and industry in order to achieve common goals and to create a critical mass of activities and actors, thereby strengthening industrial energy research and innovation on technologies for which working at the Community level will add most value.

The European Electricity Grid Initiative (EEGI) was launched in 2010 as one of the European Industrial Initiatives under the SET-Plan.
The strategic objective of the EEGI is:
The first EEGI Roadmap 2010-2018 was approved by the European Commission and the Member States in June 2010.
EEGI Implementation Plan
The first EEGI Implementation Plan 2010-2012 was launched in 2010 based on the new EEGI R&I Roadmap.
An upgraded version was produced within the GRID+ project, summarizing the priorities on which projects launched in the period 2014-2016 should focus on regarding both transmission and distribution aspects: Download EEGI R&I Implementation Plan 2014-2016.
The integrated R&D Implementation Plan 2016-2018 is being produced within the GRID+ Storage project.
Material related to the 1st to 12th (2010-2014) EEGI meetings can be found on GRID+ website.
Material related the 13th (2015) and onwards EEGI meeting can be found on GRID+Storage website .
