Paving the way for the adoption of the SRI into national regulation and market

The SRI2MARKET project will improve the knowledge and capabilities of six EU countries (Austria, Croatia, Cyprus, France, Portugal, Spain) with regards to the introduction of the Smart Readiness Indicator (SRI) in their national regulation and market. To this end, the project differentiates its objective as follows: 1. EU countries with official test phases launched: SRI2MARKET will both support – through its disseminated messages, use cases and tools – and learn from the national testing phases. In this case, the main objective of the project is to be complementary to the planned national activities, and showcase the successes and obstacles of the testing phases so that other Member States can learn and plan accordingly the rollout of the SRI in their markets. 2. EU countries with active interest in the SRI. SRI2MARKET will support these Member States on moving forward with designing and implementing a testing phase and/or an SRI rollout when they choose to. The main objective of the project is to disseminate lessons learned from the testing phase of the Member States in the previous group, and act as a catalyst for accelerating the relevant policy decisions in the Member States of this group by initiating stakeholder dialogues and making a series of tools and use cases available. 3. EU countries where SRI2MARKET can lay the groundwork for policy makers to decide how to proceed with the SRI. The main goal of the project is to engage national policy and market stakeholders so that to create interest in the SRI and the opportunities that may emerge from it. A multilingual web-based platform will be developed, with the ability to be easily customised to national languages, national adaptations of the SRI calculation and relevant technologies.
