Scientific Support for the Transition to a Low Carbon Economy
The JRC and the Directorate General for Climate Action (CLIMA) have jointly organised an event today in Copenhagen under the auspices of the Danish Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
The conference “Scientific Support for the Transition to a Low Carbon Economy” attracted 130 participants, providing a forum for discussions on how scientific advice can best contribute to robust policy frameworks in the fight against climate change and the transition to a low carbon economy.
The floor was opened by Connie Hedegaard, European Commissioner for Climate Action and Martin Lidegaard, Danish Minister for Climate, Energy and Building. JRC and CLIMA Director Generals also took part in the event, together with representatives from the Danish and Swedish governments and research organisations.
