GreenDeal-NET is a collaborative initiative that brings together research and teaching to address the governance, policy, and legal challenges highlighted by the European Green Deal. As part of the Jean-Monnet network, our project ‘Governing the EU’s Transition towards Climate Neutrality and Sustainability‘ engages with policymakers and those interested in the EU’s transition to a more sustainable, low-carbon society.
Our network is a resource for expanding knowledge about the governance of the EU’s fair and effective climate and sustainability transition under the European Green Deal.
We focus on:
- encouraging cooperation research and debate among our partners and the broader academic community through workshops, roundtables, special issues, policy briefs, etc.
- providing educational tools, such as ‘How Green is Your Deal’ podcast, a free online course on the European Green Deal and a PhD School
- expanding to encompass a wider European and global network. This growth reflects our aim to include more key players who are actively engaged in the governance of climate and sustainability transitions within the EU and Europe.
Coordinated by the Centre for Environment, Economy and Energy at the Brussels School of Governance,GreenDeal-NET is a collaborative network initially formed by 12 core European universities:
