Can you shortly introduce your company? 

The European Steel Technology Platform (ESTEP) brings together all the major stakeholders in the European steel industry. ESTEP has 60 members (as of End of February 2023). The membership includes major steel manufacturers; universities and research institutions active in steel research; major users of steel such as car manufacturers; plant suppliers, and different EU member state organizations linked to steel.

ESTEP’s mission aims to engage in collaborative EU actions and projects on technology, which are tackling EU challenges (notably on renewable energy, climate change (low-carbon emission), circular economy) in order to create a sustainable EU steel industry.

This is namely done by disseminating results of projects, by facilitating a supportive environment for collaborative projects, by the Strategic Research Agenda and by the active network of ESTEP’s community.

ESTEP is also facilitating the Horizon Europe Clean Steel Partnership.

What is the role of ESTEP in the HyInHeat project?
