EU- funded DEEDS project gives recommendations on Research and Innovation (R&I) aimed at decarbonisation of the EU economy and society and are relevant to the EU Green Deal.
The main objectives of the DEEDS-project are to deliver state-of the art knowledge on decarbonisation pathways and to facilitate knowledge co-creation on decarbonisation pathways with policy and business representatives, scientists, NGO’s and other stakeholders.
In this DEEDS Research & Innovation Agenda, recommendations on Research and Innovation (R&I) aimed at decarbonisation of the European economy and society are compiled to inform the next Research and Innovation framework programme Horizon Europe.
Horizon Europe, in synergy with other EU programmes, will play a pivotal role in leveraging national public and private investments in the frame of the EU Green Deal. The following R&I recommendations are aligned with the topics and objectives of the EU Green Deal. They are derived from the work and products that DEEDS delivered, more specifically from the final report of the High-Level Panel of the European Decarbonisation Pathways Initiative, the workshops that DEEDS organised and the Policy Briefs and Business Guide that DEEDS published.
R&I recommendations have been identified in the below areas relevant for the EU Green Deal.
- The cross-cutting character of the European Green Deal
- Clean, affordable, and secure energy
- A Clean and Circular Industry
- Promoting climate-neutral and smart cities
- Accelerating the shift to sustainable smart transport systems
- A fair, healthy and environmental-friendly food system while preserving and restoring ecosystems and biodiversity
- Green finance and investments
- A fair and inclusive energy transition
