We are applying the Transition Super-Lab approach as “very-large-territory initiatives of real-life management of the transition from typical fossil-fuel-based local economies to zero-carbon ones”. 

Super-Labs combine evidence-based success of fast and effective decarbonisation processes with real-life and large-scale development and testing of portfolios of low carbon, cost-effective, and proven technological (and non-technological) solutions. 

In TSLs, democracy and participation of civil society are at the core of a co-creation process, putting de-carbonisation at the heart of EU research & innovation strategies/programmes (e.g. Green Deal & Horizon Europe).

What is unique about TRANSFORMER is the application of the TSL approach with an explicit focus on simultaneously transforming more than one societal system (e.g., transportation and industrial production, nutrition, and carbon sinks).
