Just Transition Platform Meeting: Coal Regions in Transition
Dr Jan-Philipp Kramer speaks at the fifth Just Transition Platform Meeting.

Climate neutrality is the EU's long-term goal. The European Green Deal 2019 proposed greenhouse gas reduction targets of 50 to 55 percent by 2030. The profound changes in the economy, industry, and society that are necessary for this purpose pose enormous challenges for countries and regions. To support a balanced and equitable transition to climate neutrality, including equality and shared prosperity, the EU has introduced the Just Transition Mechanism and is providing assistance and knowledge through the Just Transition Platform. Together with Ecorys (Lead) and the Wuppertal Institute, Prognos is supporting the European Commission – DG Regional & Urban Policy in managing this platform.
As part of the technical support for the Just Transition Platform, Prognos’ task is to provide analysis and knowledge management. These include:
The project runs from July 2021 to December 2023.
