Charting the Future: Innovation for Carbon-Neutral Islands in Europe

LOCATION
Brussels, Belgium
DATE
28 Nov 2023

Research & Innovation (R&I) stands as the cornerstone of progress, shaping a world that is not only sustainable but grows in the face of climate and energy challenges. In this era of accelerating environmental transformation, R&I becomes the guiding light, illuminating the path towards a carbon-neutral future.

Within the framework of National Energy and Climate Action Plans (NECPs), EU countries are bolstering their commitment to this carbon-neutral future. The plans are the roadmap towards a cleaner, greener, and more prosperous Europe, and R&I is the engine that powers their success. It propels forward a new era of energy efficiency, renewable technologies, and environmental preservation, making these targets not just aspirational but genuinely attainable.

Under the support of EU-funded project Mediterranean Island Cleantech Innovation Ecosystem (MICIE), Cyprus and Malta are joining hands to accelerate their efforts in research and innovation (R&I) to meet their climate and energy targets. The consortium MICIE project invites you to participate in the discussion on boosting Research & Innovation (R&I) to decarbonise the Mediterranean islands, with a special emphasis on the islands of Cyprus and Malta.

The event will take place on: November 28, 2023, from 8:30 to 14:00 CET, at the EIT House in Brussels (https://maps.app.goo.gl/BBf2jPaRubw1dMuy9).

Keynote speakers from leading European organisations will share their experiences and ideas on how Cyprus and Malta can advance R&I efforts, setting a precedent for sustainable island development. Welcome speeches will be delivered by distinguished speakers, such us Mrs. Roberta Metsola, President of the European Parliament (prerecorded), Dr. Andy Kerr, CSO of EIT Climate-KIC (prerecorded) and Ms. Kathiana Bonello Ghio, Deputy Permanent Representative of Malta to the European Union. We have the honour to host also Ms. Christianne Edger of FEDARENE, Ms. Klaudie Mrkusova and Mr. Robert Portelli of DG ENER and Mr. Erki Ani of Beamline Accelerator.
