The aim of the current version of the international E.ON research initiative is to sponsor applied nanotechnology research at the universities and institutes and thus to further promote the efficient and economic use of nanotechnology in power generation, energy transformation, energy storage or use. The company has made available sponsorship awards amounting to approximately 6 million EUR around the world. The research projects selected by an international jury of experts from those applying during the competition period will be awarded their E.ON Research Award on 28 April 2009 in Düsseldorf.
The international E.ON research initiative has been supporting researchers and teams in universities and institutes in a broad sweep of research topics relating to the energy industry since 2007.
