The JOPRAD consortium would like to invite you to its Mid-Term Workshop that will be held on the 7- 8th September 2016 at the Congress Centre, Prague, Czech Republic. The Mid-Term Workshop will enable “programme owners” and “programme managers” in EU Member-States to evaluate the feasibility and the added-value of the implementation of Joint Programming at European level. Further details are also available on the JOPRAD website.

The design of energy policies requires the involvement of the citizens by means of appropriate information and negotiation mechanisms that make the decision-making more participative. The transition to low carbon economies entails diverse societal issues such as environment, risks, and sustainability. In all these fields there is an increasing demand for effective communication among policy-makers, industry, citizens and researchers in order to build up a solid and well supported policies.
