Designing future energy policies – Social sciences and humanities to accelerate the energy transition
Friends of Europe is delighted to invite you to “Designing future energy policies – Social sciences and humanities to accelerate the energy transition”, the first ever Brussels’ conference on the role of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) disciplines for advancing European energy policies. The event will be held on Tuesday 22 January in Brussels.
Energy policies cannot fulfil their maximum potential if the knowledge stemming from social sciences and humanities research is not factored into the decision-making process. Citizens should be at the core of all policies – including those to do with energy.
This conference will underline how crucial social knowledge is to accelerating the decarbonisation of our economy and making a real dent in climate change. It will also present concrete recommendations on how to advance and better design future European energy policies in the lead up to the European election and in the context of the upcoming research and innovation framework; Horizon Europe.
