The MERITS consortium is formed by 10 partners from 6 European Union countries. 

The consortium consists of all main types of institutions needed to cover the value chain of the project: 4 research organizations (TNO, Tecnalia, VITO, ISE), 2 universities (Ulster and UDL) and 4 industries for manufacturing and exploitation of the project developments (2 large: Mostostal, Glen Dimplex, and 2 SME’s: RTB and ZEN). Together those partners form a well-balanced consortium, considering primary field of excellence, as well as type of institution as well as location.
