Urgent need to rapidly reduce carbon dioxide
The urgent need to rapidly reduce carbon dioxide emissions to avoid uncontrollable climate change and fulfil the requirements of the Paris Agreement shapes decisions on how to define, design, and implement the energy transition in the Netherlands. The energy transition is closely intertwined with essentially all Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), but its wider effects are seldom taken into account or studied in detail. The goal of this interdisciplinary initiative is to stimulate and initiate research across faculties that maps the energy transition in the Netherlands and Europe against the SDGs beyond Dutch borders.
Generate new opportunities
The RPA will provide seed money for joint cross-faculty initiatives to generate new opportunities for researchers to apply their expertise in an interdisciplinary approach, and develop joint proposals for external research funding.
ENLENS call for project proposals
Project proposals can be submitted before 1 April and 1 October each year, but intermediate submissions may be considered.
