The European Commission and the European Research Executive Agency (REA) are organising a “European Green Deal Cluster Event” on 6-7 July 2021. The event will bring together projects and researchers funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), as well as other research and innovation initiatives under the remit of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport. These include the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), European University Alliances, Erasmus+ and Creative Europe projects.
The Green Deal cluster event is part of the EU’s feedback-to-policy activities and convenes EU policymakers, researchers and experts to explore how R&I can help achieve the goals of the European Green Deal.
Over the span of the event, participants will be able to attend a mix of plenary sessions and parallel thematic panels, featuring policymakers and researchers working on biodiversity, sustainable agriculture and soil health, clean energy, eliminating pollution, climate action and green transport.
A Virtual Exhibition will showcase a great variety of additional R&I projects funded by the MSCA, the EIT, Erasmus+ and Creative Europe – where EIT Climate-KIC supported project B-PLAS (Creating Bioplastics from Industrial Organic Waste) will present its approach to convert waste carbon (organic matter in sludges) into renewable and environmental benign material.
