The three Horizon 2020 projects INNOPATHS, REINVENT and EUCALC address the challenges of planning technological transition ahead of time and prioritising within and between different sectors in Europe.
By acting in this way, they support stringent mitigation policies while taking into account the inertia in innovation systems and lock-in effects as well. They have been funded under the topic 'Pathways towards the decarbonisation and resilience of the European economy in the timeframe 2030-2050 and beyond'.
This collaboration on the decarbonisation of the EU economy is aimed at exchanging experiences while avoiding fragmentation and duplication of efforts. INNOPATHS, REINVENT and EUCALC collaborate in the communication and dissemination activities, joining efforts to stimulate science-to-policy discussions in support of policy making. This collaboration resulted in a joint participation at policy relevant events, such as the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2017 and a side-event at the 23rd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Bonn in November 2017.
