About this event

EERA Joint Programmes on Energy System Integration (JP ESI) and on clean Energy tranSition for Sustainable Society (JP e3s) are excited to meet you at the Lithuanian Energy Institute in Kaunas, Lithuania, for 2 days of intense activities and debates on energy transition & sustainability.


3rd June - WELCOME DAY and Networking Dinner

More information on the location coming soon!

4th June - DAY 1

  • JP ESI and e3s Joint Workshop on Sustainability in Energy Systems: Considering Multiple Perspectives in Design and Assessment. Find the programme here, detailed agenda will follow soon.

This one-day workshop is aimed at discussing the methodological challenges and possible solutions to provide the required pre-conditions to develop sustainable energy systems and transition scenarios from a holistic perspective. Therefore, the focus will be on multidisciplinary approaches, which are suitable for considering environmental, economic and social aspects as well as their cross-impacts and for dealing with the target conflicts that arise inevitably. The aim is to summarise the possible solutions and research requirements discussed in a white paper.


This is a roll-up-your-sleeves workshop. The morning session will be also streamed online. Lunchtime and afternoon sessions can only be joined onsite. Participants are encouraged to present a poster at lunchtime, which should focus on possible contributions to the topic of the workshop (solutions for constructing transition scenarios towards sustainable energy systems more holistically). Potential posters should ideally address at least two of the following topics:

  1. Energy Systems Modelling
  2. Life Cycle Sustainability Analysis of Energy Systems
  3. Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis
  4. Macro-Economic Modelling

Poster presentation & registration

Participants interested to present a poster should send a poster title to and by April 30th 2024 at the latest.

  • JP ESI and e3s hosted dinner. More information on the location coming soon!

5th June - DAY 2

  • JP ESI Workshop on Energy Trasition in Central-Eastern Europe. Deatiled programme will follow soon.

The workshop will focus on the energy transition in the Central-Eastern European countries. We will examine the national decarbonization strategies in the Central-Eastern European region and the modelling methodologies that support them. We will compare the approaches in Central-Eastern and Western Central Europe, and assess opportunities for scientific collaboration. The interactive format of the workshop is designed to facilitate the exchange of ideas, with case studies from different countries and much room for dialogue among speakers and attendees. A substantial part of the workshop will be dedicated to energy justice, geographically again focusing on C-E Europe.

  • JP ESI Dinner
