Neth-ER and Universities of the Netherlands cordially invite you to join the forthcoming hybrid event ‘European Green Deal: Impact and vision of Dutch research’ on June 21st from 15:30-17:30.

Invitation for hybrid event ‘European Green Deal: Impact and vision of Dutch research’

This event aims at exploring the possibilities for research at European level and at scrutinizing the role of knowledge institutions as co-creators of the Green Deal, alongside the political level. Furthermore, we will discuss how the research agenda of institutions is shaped by the green transition ambitions.


To these aims, the event will provide a platform for knowledge institutions and policymakers to exchange information, best practices and case studies at research and institutional level.

Topics that will be addressed include:
- Policy and funding synergies at European level
- Institutional actions to give shape to the implementation of the Green Deal
- Multi-level cooperation between different types of stakeholders
- The contribution of different research disciplines to the green transition
