A sustainable future is impossible without well-functioning sustainable economy that is based on new energy system with renewable and new energy sources. The
European Union has put incredible efforts to transform the European economy into a circular, energy efficient and climate-neutral that at the same time provides an optimal business environment for sustainable growth, job creation and innovation. As the European Union has committed to make Europe the world’s first carbon neutral continent, the question is what are the regional contributions to the achievement of this ambition and making the European economy more sustainable and climate-neutral?
The round table, organised by the Jean Monnet Chair in Sustainable EU Economy, brings together experts, policy makers, and representatives from business and
academia to discuss different regional initiatives aimed at making the regional economy more sustainable and climate-neutral, and will especially focus on one of the most successful collective efforts to develop a sustainable regional H2 economy in the Northern part of the Netherlands.
Dr Beata Kviatek will lead the round table. She is Jean Monnet Chair in Sustainable EU Economy at Hanze University AS, Project Leader for “UNLOCK – Unlocking Green Hydrogen Economy for SMEs in European Regions” – a European Interregional cooperation project for enhancement of sustainable growth, SMEs competitiveness and jobs creation within SMEs.
Besides Dr Beata Kviatek, there will be four guest speakers:
