Project Management Organization Energy, Technology, Sustainability (ETN)

Project Management Organization Energy, Technology, Sustainability (ETN) is one of two project management organizations belonging to Forschungszentrum Jülich. For over 25 years, ETN has been working exclusively for the Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) and performs its tasks as an organizational unit in a predominantly independent manner.

Originally concerned solely with funding for renewables, ETN has grown into a project management organization with around 80 employees who deal with a broad spectrum of topics. In addition to energy research, ETN looks after projects on climate change mitigation, new mobility, electromobility, and the health economy as well as projects with regional funding. Equality aspects and digitalization process are a firm part of ETN’s overarching principles.

ETN offers prospective funding applicants free consulting services on funding issues. ETN reviews outlines and proposals, edits and approves applications for research funding, oversees projects, and distributes grants. In NRW, the funding of research projects is generally governed by competitive calls for proposals.

In collaboration with Project Management Jülich, ETN has set up LeitmarktAgentur.NRW, which was chosen by the Federal State of NRW in a transparent selection procedure as one of nine intermediaries for the current OP ERDF NRW. OP ERDF NRW stands for the Operational Programme for Investments in Growth and Employment from the European Regional Development Fund in North Rhine-Westphalia for 2014 to 2020. Within this programme, LeitmarktAgentur.NRW implements calls for funding in eight leading markets as well as in the field of climate change mitigation. The research and development projects selected in these calls are funded jointly by the European Union and NRW and are approved by LeitmarktAgentur.NRW, who remains responsible for them for their duration.
