Tackling the greatest challenge of our time.

Climate Strategies works at the science-policy interface, advancing climate policy through meaningful interactions between decision-makers and researchers across Europe and internationally. We are an international, not-for-profit research network with an expansive network of world-leading researchers.

Climate change is our greatest planetary threat, affecting all species and ecosystems. Governments must meet the Paris Agreement’s temperature target to ensure the well-being of our planet and its people for generations to come.

Achieving a just and sustainable future means bridging the work of researchers at the forefront of understanding the complex impacts of this crisis with those who are able to enact change.


Oil & Gas Transitions. Co-creating evidence to accelerate policy action in the North Sea

This initiative will develop a better understanding of oil & gas transition scenarios for the North Sea region. It will also co-produce just and feasible transition pathways and create blueprints for countries facing similar challenges.

Incorporating just transition strategies into developing and least developed countries climate policies

Building on research from previous Climate Strategies projects, this project aims to support governments of developing and least developed countries in developing and integrating just transition strategies in their climate policies.

Climate Friendly Materials Platform

The Climate Friendly Materials Platform brings together policy makers, industry representatives, practitioners in industrial decarbonisation and applied researchers for the development of a shared understanding of tangible policy options. It builds on the continuous work since 2013 to develop a common policy action at the national and EU level to successfully decarbonise the European basic materials sector.
