IIASA at the Mission Innovation Austria Week 2019

Nadejda Komendantova is invited to speak by the Federal Ministry of the Republic of Austria for Transport, Innovation and Technology at the Mission Innovation Austria Week 2019. Her talk covers the results of the LINKS project on energy transition in the Climate and Energy Model (CEM) Regions of Austria.

With the Austrian Climate and Energy Strategy, the Austrian federal government has taken an ambitious energy research initiative. The implementation plan, which was elaborated jointly with Austrian businesses, is presented and discussed at the Mission Innovation Austria Week. The question on the innovation landscape with which Austria will make the energy and transport transformation is addressed. Industry representatives point out the opportunities for businesses and hold discussions with representatives of the European Commission, promotion agencies and ministries, who provide an outlook on coming strategies and funding priorities.

LINKS project

Based on research in four regions, including Freistadt, Ebreichsdorf, Baden and Amstetten recommendations on human factors of energy transition such as awareness and willingness to participate in energy transition and decision-making processes were developed.
