Designing future energy policies: Social sciences and humanities to accelerate the energy transition

22 January 2019, Brussels, Belgium

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 context of the upcoming research and innovation framework: Horizon Europe. The event is organised as part of the SHAPE ENERGY H2020 EU-funded project. It aims at generating new knowledge, support evidence-based policymaking, produce interdisciplinary solutions and develop Europe's expertise in using and applying available research into the energy transition decision-making process. It will bring the perfect opportunity for a wide range of high level panellists and senior stakeholders to connect the dots, debate the key issues and think through on the political and social changes as well the necessary research and innovation investments needed to further integrate social sciences in the future of policymaking.

European Steel: The Wind of Change, Brussels Seminar

31 January 2018, Brussels

More than 100 high-level stakeholders and decision-makers discussed the questions of Steel in Europe at a seminar organised by the European Commission, Directorate General for Research & Innovation, on 31 January 2018 in Brussels.

After a political introduction by representatives from the European Parliament and the European Commission, the seminar shed light on the opportunities offered by RFCS, the Research Fund for Coal and Steel, Horizon 2020 and the Innovation Fund. With the insights from industrial and research stakeholders, the seminar focused on ‘Energy in future steelmaking’ and ‘Steel in the energy market applications’. It was concluded by a session making the synthesis on the different technological paths towards cleaner, more efficient and competitive European steelmaking. These proposals were discussed by a roundtable of European and national policy-makers that addressed issues related to industrial policy, R&I and the EU multi-annual financial perspectives. 

The seminar provided a good opportunity to explore the potential for an ambitious European joint initiative on ‘Greening European steel’ with the participation of Commission representatives from DG RTD, DG CLIMA, DG ENER and DG GROW.

The conclusions of this Seminar will feed the Industry Days of 22 and 23 February 2018.

A ‘Steel and Society’ action highlighted the questions of skills needed in the steel sector. 

For more information, contact Dr Domenico Rossetti di Valdalberο, Deputy Head of Unit ‘Coal and Steel’ in DG RTD.
