These are defining new research topics, looking for innovative project ideas and developing consortiums to take part in the European Programmes. Our Website: http://www.pesi-seguridadindustrial.es/ .
PESI is a non-profit Association, formed by around 300 agents and fully led by Spanish Industry. We support our members (Corps & SME, industry associations, research centres and universities) in taking part in any call related to FP7, offer technical advice to develop project proposals, help to build consortiums and facilitate the contact with the European Commission Officers. The Spanish National Contact for FP7 Programme, CDTI, supports the International Innovation Unit (European projects Office) at PESI. Furthermore, as coordinator of the Network of National European Technology Platforms on Industrial Safety (NTPIS), PESI offers a unique opportunity to help companies to improve the quality of their consortiums by searching the best partners. PESI itself could participate in R&D projects for dissemination and communication tasks, so as to set up sectoral challenges and other technology and legal requirements.
PESI, on behalf of ETPIS, is leading the “SafeFuture” initiative (Safe-Infrastructures, Safe-Energy, Safe-Production) to the European Commission and its R&D programme Horizon-2020
