Together for Low-Carbon Europe: Energy Research meets Civil Society

A joint event of the EESC and the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) during European Sustainable Energy Week 2012 Conference - Brussels, EESC, Belgium


For reaching the 20-20-20 objectives and realising the "no regrets" scenarios of the EU Energy Roadmap, enhanced energy research will be a sine qua non contribution. The Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan and the envisaged 30% budget increase for the FP7 successor "Horizon 2020" can play a key role in the decarbonisation of European societies.
This common EESC-EERA event is an opportunity for the energy research community to open up to European civil society and illustrate to an enlarged public the latest developments in low carbon technologies. The experience of the EESC in advising EU legislators on energy and research, as well as the EERA Joint Programme research results will be the basis of an interactive one-day conference, where experts, panelists and participants will engage into a stimulating debate about the impact of energy research on people's everyday lives.
