Invitation: Joint Research Outcome Seminar

Energy Transitions in the Context of Climate Change and Sustainable Development

Clean energy has become a major growth sector as countries around the world are increasingly looking towards transitioning to low emission energy systems. The EU and the Arab region, particularly the GCC, are both committed to progress toward low emissions and sustainable practices. However, this shift needs to progress substantially if we are to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. This means that the energy sector should undergo a deep transformation over the next few decades.

To learn about this, you are invited to an online Research Outcome Seminar (RoS), which will provide an overview of the steps that EU and GCC have taken to achieve their clean energy targets including the EU green deal and the visions and strategies of GCC countries. Moreover, it will discuss the challenges that the two regions are facing and explore how they can be turned into business and economic opportunities. In addition, the webinar will highlight the efforts that both regions are undertaking to foster their collaboration in the clean energy and climate change domains.

The webinar is organised jointly by Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF), the European Union Delegation to the State of Kuwait and the State of Qatar, and the EU-GCC Clean Energy Technology Network, and will take place on Thursday 17 June 2021 at 13.00 CET/ 14.00 Qatar Time / 15.00 GST.
