Subject:ASTEP project’s 1st plenary meeting, reflecting on the progress made towards new innovative Solar Heating concept for Industrial Processes and the imminent approach onwards.

On the 10th November 2020, our Project Manager Ms. Gianna Avgousti representing eBOS Technologies Ltd as one of the partners in the ASTEP Consortium, participated via teleconference in ASTEP project’s 1st plenary meeting, together with representatives from all 16 consortium partners from 9 European countries. The meeting was organised and hosted by the project Coordinator, Dr. Antonio Rovira representing the National University of Distance Education of Madrid, Spain (UNED). 


ASTEP is an EU-funded project under the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme under Grant Agreement No. 884411. It aims to extend the use of solar thermal energy to industrial processes by implementing innovative, reliable, and advanced technologies to assure a reliable solution needed for continuous operating process. It also aims to support additional projects beyond the demo sites, providing insights for the project’s development and to further create opportunities for the replication of the demo sites.


The main focus of ASTEP is on activities that support (a) the reduction of operational costs of industrial processes; (b) increase the modularity of systems that support the increase of the thermal supply; and (c) the improvement of industrial electronic controllers.


The aim of the meeting was to: 

  • discuss the early stages of the project’s progress, including the upcoming strategy, the project’s implementation plan, recommendations and guidelines;
  • introduce to the consortium members the Innovation, Project Steering, Scientific & Technical Committees and their role in the project.
