Networking for Decarbonisation Pathways

On 7 February 2018, projects under the Horizon 2020 Programme of the EU came together to discuss synergies and how to maximise their impact.

On 7 February 2018, EU-funded climate mitigation projects came together in Brussels to stimulate peer-to-peer and science-to-policy discussions on how to get the most out of EU-funded projects for the benefit of society and policy-making.

A wide range of projects working on different topics in the science-policy interface discussed the main tasks after the Paris Agreement, how to navigate the science-policy interface and opportunities and challenges of decarbonisation pathways in the EU.

The second session saw DEEDS Coordinator Adriaan Slob discuss global and regional zero-emission pathways with Tom Van Ierland, DG Clima; Keywan Riahi, CoordinatorCD-LINKS; Roberta Pierfederici, Coordinator COP21RIPPLES; David Tabara, GREENWIN; and Jenny Lieu, Coordiantor TRANSRISK.
