The GROWINPRO project – coordinated by Andrea Roventini economist at the Institute of Economics of the Sant’Anna School - has been included in the European selection of Horizon2020 projects contributing to the clean energy transition and climate neutrality.
The European Commission has recently adopted the “Fit for 55 Package”, a series of climate legislative proposals aimed at reducing gas emissions of at least 55 percent by 2030, compared to 1990 levels, and set Europe on the path to climate neutrality by 2050.
“This requires actions to prevent methane leaks, facilitate market entry of renewable and low carbon gases, encourage building renovation, develop sustainable carbon removal systems and address the social and labour impacts of the climate transition”, reads the factsheet published by the European Commission.
Research and innovation will be key drivers in developing solutions and technologies needed to drive the clean energy transition and to reach the climate neutrality. The GROWINPRO project is one of the ten Horizon 2020 projects included in the factsheet: “The project delivers an agent-based model providing the best policy mix of green innovation and regulation to keep warming below 2 degrees and achieve sustainable and inclusive growth”.
