Launch of new 3-year Jean Monnet Network on EU Climate and Energy Governance

With the support of the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, the Jean Monnet Network on Governing the EU’s Climate and Energy Transition in Turbulent Times or GOVTRAN brings together a broad range of scholars interested in climate and energy governance in the European Union. GOVTRAN reaches out to the wider epistemic community and actively fosters engagement with policymakers and the broader public in this field. The project is coordinated by the IES’ research cluster on Environment and Sustainable Development (Prof. Sebastian Oberthür) and implemented in collaboration with three other universities: Ghent University, the University of East Anglia and the University of Eastern Finland. In the next three years, GOVTRAN will sponsor a number of events, such as roundtable debates and lectures, and initiate a variety of publications and other outputs, including policy briefs, podcasts, special issues of journals, and an online course. One of first activities of the GOVTRAN Network are separate calls for papers for two international workshops and special issues on:

  • Climate and Energy Governance and the Future of Europe, &
  • Appraising the EU’s 2030 Climate and Energy Policy Framework
