Energy & Climate Change

The main objective of the Energy & Climate Change Working Group is to act as a platform to discuss and share information on energy-related priorities and funding programmes, especially looking at the Green Deal and Horizon Europe. Since the energy-related topics are gaining importance in the European context, the WG will explore links and synergies with other areas in which energy plays a central role and cooperate with other ERRIN Working Groups.
