Dear <<Title (TITLE)>> <<Last Name>>,

We would like to kindly invite you to two virtual events that Science Europe is co-organising in relation to the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference (COP26).

The first event is a symposium that takes place on Monday 8 November and will look at how the research community can contribute to the net-zero challenge.

The second event is a panel discussion on Wednesday 10 November that will explore how the lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic in terms of empowering policy makers through scientific advice, can be applied to address the challenge of climate change.
Science for Net-zero Transition:
Linking Green Objectives with Societal Development

One of the ways in which academic and research communities world-wide can address the urgent global challenges is by uniting efforts towards the net-zero transition. Realising this transition represents an enormously complex challenge requiring collaboration across all disciplines, communities, institutions and involving societies across the globe.

For this reason, CESAER, the International Sustainable Campus Network (ISCN), the University of Strathclyde, and Science Europe joined forces to co-organise a symposium in the fringe of COP26 to explore how the research community can unite their efforts to contribute to this transition.

Empowering Policy Makers with Informed Scientific Knowledge to Address the Climate Crisis

The COVID-19 crisis has taught us many lessons, including on the importance of drawing on local, regional, national, and international expertise, and on the need for the research community and policy makers to collaborate at a global level.

UK Research and Innovation and Science Europe are convening an international panel of senior government officials and eminent scientists to explore how these lessons learned can be applied to help us address the climate crisis, in particular in the context of the UK Presidency COP26 campaign areas.

We hope that you are able to join us for either or both event! In case you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Nicola Dotti, Senior Policy Officer at Science Europe:

Best regards,
