The conference aims to gather different views from stakeholders - researchers, practitioners, as well as policy makers - on energy transition, with specific attention to innovation and employment, as these are the main challenges linked to this transition. In a first session, policy implementation plans will be analysed in relation to the European context. In particular, the difficult financial context as well as the need to adapt infrastructure will be mentioned and discussed. Then, the second session will address the key role of innovation during the transition, and its potential to tackle both environmental and employment issues. Thereafter, recent research will be used as input into discussions on the macroeconomic, sectoral and local-employment impact of the energy transition. The day will conclude with a round table involving key actors of the transition, who will put into perspective the ideas developed during the previous sessions.
