Conference: Coal Regions in Transition Platform

11 December 2017
Conseil régional - Grand Est, Strasbourg, France

The European Commission invites national and regional public authorities, industry, civil society and social partners with an interest in successful transformation of coal mining regions to the launch of the Coal Regions in Transition Platform (16.00 - 20.00 CET).

As part of the Clean Energy for All Europeans Package, a number of actions were announced to boost the clean energy transition by bringing more focus on social fairness, new skills and financing for the real economy. The European Commission is now launching a Platform on Coal Regions in Transition to help regions with coal mining activities identify, develop and implement projects with the potential to kick-start a viable economic and technological transformation, and to enable multi-stakeholder dialogue on policy framework and regulations.

The many high-level speakers include Maroš Šefčovič, European Commission Vice-President for Energy Union, and Corina Crețu, European Commissioner for Regional Policy. The event will be chaired by Dominique Ristori, Director General, DG ENER.
