1st Stakeholder Dialogue with Young Scientists
Increasing the Ambition Level of Climate Change Mitigation
– New Challenges and Opportunities for International
Cooperation on the Energy Transition
Date: September 1st (9:00-12:00h CET, 4:00-7:00h JST) – online
The COVID-19 pandemic revealed that combined efforts at the international level to tackle global threats are both necessary and possible. It also shed light on the World’s potential to develop, produce and disseminate (technological) goods and generate public financial support needed to deal with the pandemic – in breathtaking speed and amount. To accelerate the Energy Transition, to meet the targets of the Paris Climate Agreement, and to cope with the effects of climate change, similarly decisive policy measures are the order of the day.
With a particular focus on energy solutions and policies that are in line with climate change mitigation commitments while also being compatible with security of energy supply, social well-being and the international competitiveness of the economy, the German-Japanese Energy Transition Council (GJETC) strives to enhance the binational exchange between researchers investigating energy matters related to Japan and/or Germany.
On the occasion of its First Stakeholder Dialogue with Young Scientists, the GJETC seeks to widen its perspective by inviting young scientists (age under 40years) with a particular focus on the Energy Transition in Germany and/or Japan to share their ideas with the Council members following brief presentations of this term’s study topics.
Additionally, we encourage scientists from various disciplines to present their own scientific findings or to introduce a question/topic for comparative German-Japanese analysis that could be discussed by the Council members. If your submission is accepted, you will be invited to present your results or ideas in elevator pitches of 5 minutes, followed by 5-10 min. Q&A from the Council Members.
Action invited: Submission of an abstract (up to 200 words) for an elevator pitch
Deadline: by July 12th, 2021 (Acceptance notification will be sent by August 6, 2021)
