Coordinating energy research for a low carbon Europe
EERA JP E3s workshop “Social Science and Humanities’ contribution to the energy transition”
October 11, 2018 from 9.00 – 13.00h
MEETING VENUE: University of Torino, Lungo Dora Siena 100 A, 10153 Torino, Italy
As the energy sector transforms from a largely infrastructure-driven business into a decentralized and digitized landscape with a growing number of different actors, scientists and policymakers are adopting a new perspective on developments in this highly strategic sector. In this context, insights proceeding from social science and humanities (SSH) disciplines offer explanations for actors’ behavior, citizen engagement, social innovation and technology adoption, which, combined, are driving the energy transition forward.
By means of the present workshop, the EERA Joint Programme offers an opportunity to researchers working at the intersection of energy and SSH to discuss the usefulness of SSH findings and contributions for the governance of the energy transition in an open and critical way. Three questions will guide us through the participative sessions:
