Post-Coal Future Lab

Scoping Phase

Designing a platform for sharing experiences of stakeholders affected by coal transitions in selected countries.

Year: 2021 Current Project

  • Overview

    NEW: Join us on 17 December for this online dialogue on the post-coal future in Europe.

    The objective of this project is to design and set up a Post-Coal Future Lab (PCFL) platform.

    Supported by EIT Climate-KIC and together with our partner Wise Europa, we will engage a diverse set of stakeholders to develop the concept, framework and activities for the platform. The PCFL will create a safe space for stakeholders in Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) countries to share experiences about coal transitions. Through these exchanges, the platform will ease developing innovative ideas and activities needed for a successful systemic transformation of coal regions.

    Activities include:

    • Selecting RIS country regions currently undergoing a coal transition
    • Identifying and contacting a diverse set of stakeholders and developing a strategy for relevant stakeholders to join the future platform
    • Analyse concepts, programmes, best practices and mistakes of current and past initiatives focused on coal transition to understand gaps and lessons learned
    • Co-develop a feasible concept for PCFL with stakeholders
    • Develop a business model to guarantee financial stability of the lab.
