The European Green Deal: Governing the EU’s Transition towards Climate Neutrality and Sustainability

The Jean Monnet Network - The European Green Deal: Governing the EU’s Transition towards Climate Neutrality and Sustainability (GreenDeal-NET) – addresses the complex set of interlocking challenges in governance, policy, and law related to sustainability and climate neutrality which the Green Deal brings to the fore.​

There is a high and increasing demand for related knowledge and analysis among scholars, policy makers, and the general public on these issues, especially as the effects of climate change and climate policy become ever more widely felt.​​

The network will provide and enhance knowledge resources on the governance of the EU’s fair and effective climate and sustainability transition under the European Green Deal. It is designed to foster collaboration on new teaching, research and debating activities among the Network partners and the broader scholarly community in the field. 

GreenDeal-NET, coordinated by the Centre for Environment, Economy and Energy, is a collaboration network of 12 core European universities, expanding to becoma a much broader European and global network of key players active in the field of EU/European governance of the climate and sustainability transition..

GreenDeal-NET builds on previous successful networking projects, including the COST Action on Innovations in Climate Governance (INOGOV www.inogov.eu), as well as the Jean Monnet Network on “Governing the EU’s Climate and Energy Transition in Turbulent Times” (GOVTRAN www.govtran.eu).
