Why join?​​​​​​​

While the transition to climate neutrality is urgently needed, the strategies to actually achieve this goal remain less defined.

This event will discuss the potential of the Transition Super-Lab approach and address how we can drive the transition towards climate neutrality in an inclusive and just manner.​​​​​​​

To ensure that the knowledge created within TRANSFORMER can inspire further projects and be adopted by other regions, we believe it is essential to facilitate a debate between actors from across Europe and different societal sectors about Transition Super-Labs and their role in Europe’s green transition.

    The event aims to contribute to this challenge by

    • Presenting key project results, including the Roadmap and Transition Model and Assessment Frameworks 
    • Demonstrating the significance of the Transition Super-Lab approach by presenting our TSLs' results. 
    • Showcasing TRANSFORMER follower regions and replication capabilities 
    • Discussing transition management, innovation and cluster strategies 
    • And many more, including workshops and two site visits in the Ruhr Area.
