EURADA has finally launched its call for Regional Organisation from Outside of Europe in the frame of the Horizon 2020 project ENTRANCES. As you may know from previous communications, EURADA is part of the consortium for the project “ENergy TRANsitions from Coal and carbon: Effects on Societies”, which aims to develop a methodology on the effects of decarbonisation policies in coal-mining and carbon-intensive regions. To attain this goal, the project has established a system of co-creation meetings in which relevant stakeholders such as civil society representatives, public authorities, economic practitioners, and other members of the quintuple helix will discuss the project results and outputs. The aim of such meetings is to gather and count on the broadest scope of voices possible lest any voice is ignored in the final set of recommendations. 

In order to increase the project’s visibility outside European boundaries, EURADA is conducting a call for mirroring regions outside of Europe that are facing similar issues when dealing with decarbonisation policies. You can check the full call here. This way, at least three of these regional organisations are involved in both the project co-creation meetings and the design of the final recommendations. For this purpose, the chosen regions will be invited to participate in the project’s first and last meetings, to be held in Brussels in May 2021 and May 2023, to actively participate by presenting their first-hand experiences on the topic. In between these two major events, the mirroring regions will be responsible for disseminating and communicating project results among their network. Therefore, as of today, we will be gathering proposals to be a part of this peer regional organisations from outside of Europe. 

If you are willing to participate in this call, please, fulfil Annex I and forward it to our EURADA colleagues in charge of the project through the mail address: ENTRANCES@eurada.org If you want to clear up some doubt or you need further information, do not hesitate to contact our colleague Ulises Pisano
