  • to deliver and disseminate in-depth analysis of EU climate policies and tools to academics and policy-makers
  • to create interest in the EU among stakeholders responsible for industrial policy
  • to upgrade skills of academics on the issue of the EU climate change mitigation leadership
  • to promote research experience for young researchers in European Union issues

Our target groups:

  • Students (non EU related studies) with knowledge and skills needed to assist Ukraine’s adhesion to the EU socio-economic agenda
  • Academics acquainted to EU climate agenda, ongoing projects, initiatives and best practices
  • Human resource to sustain module’s teaching
  • Professionals from industry and public organisations familiar with advanced EU practices
