Coal Regions in Transition Platform Working Groups: launch and first meetings

26 February 2018 to 27 February 2018
Location
Brussels

The European Commission launched the Platform on Coal Regions in Transition in December 2017. As part of the Platform’s activities, its two working groups will now hold their first meetings:

  • The ‘Post Coal Economy and Structural Transformation’ group will cover strategies and projects focusing on the economic diversification of coal regions
  • The ‘Eco-Innovation and Advanced Coal Technologies’ group will cover strategies and projects  focusing on the improvement of air quality and coal-based technologies which are compatible with the long-term vision of the decarbonisation of the European economy.

At these first meetings, the Platform’s Work Programme for 2018-2019 will be presented and discussed. Regional strategies and priority projects by pilot coal regions, as well as financing issues, will also be on the agenda.
