International Research Network For Low-Carbon Societies 9th Conference
Clean Growth and Innovation in a Changing World
The 9th Conference of the International Research Network for Low-Carbon Societies (LCS-RNet) took place at Warwick University in the UK. The conference was organised by the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), which is the Secretariat of the LCS-RNet, and the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC), which hosted the event.
The conference gathered together around 200 participants over two days, and focused on policy challenges and breakthroughs regarding clean growth and innovation. Speakers from Europe and Asia of different backgrounds (academicians, NGOs, industry and government representatives) held discussions in the plenary and parallel sessions about topics as diverse as carbon pricing, green finance, clean technology development, energy access, and long-term low-carbon strategies. The audience was actively engaged with the speakers during Q&A sessions after each presentation, which allowed for productive debates and strengthened understanding on cross-cutting issues. Finally, the conference offered the opportunity to identify collaboration opportunities between participants, notably in the field of policy research.
