EU-US Summit on Science, Technology and Sustainable Economic Growth Post Carbon Transitions, Visions and Challenges

The transition to a low-carbon world requires a forward-looking approach, tackling the climate, energy and land-use challenges from multidisciplinary and integrated perspectives. The international conference on "Post Carbon Transitions, Visions and Challenges" organized by the EC in Brussels on September 29, 2011 will illustrate key results from several EU studies addressing these challenges, including FEEM Research Projects PASHMINA and POLINARES.


On 29 September, the European Commission is organizing a conference in Brussels on "Post Carbon Transitions, Visions and Challenges".

This conference is concluding a year-long dialogue between Europe and the US on science, innovation and sustainable economic growth. The purpose of this dialogue is to enhance our understanding of the ways in which science and innovation affect sustainable economic growth, to identify impediments to the flow of science from the "bench" to applications; and to explore policy options that might enhance the impact of science on economic activity and societal needs.

This conference is structured into two sessions: "Visions of post carbon world" and "Transition challenges". It takes stock of several EU research projects and covers socio-economic, scientific and technological aspects within a forward-looking perspective. It tackles the issues of energy, environment and land-use issues in a cross-sectorial and multidisciplinary way.

This conference will be an opportunity for academics, national authorities, stakeholders and EU policy makers to meet, interact and to exchange on the main current and future issues on science, technology and sustainable economic growth related to a post-carbon society.
