WHAT’S THE ISSUE?
If the world is to meet its climate and carbon targets in the wake of COP26, governments, scientists, individuals and national and international organisations are going to have to work together to find solutions and change the way we all live our lives.
Research and innovation will be key to success in saving the planet, and it’s vital that the very latest information is shared across the world.
One man who’s leading the drive to do just that across Europe is Jean-Eric Paquet – the Director General of Research and Innovation at the European Commission.
This week on The Agenda he sits down with Stephen Cole to outline exactly how the European Commission is leading the way to a greener, more sustainable future.
MEET THE EXPERT:
Jean-Eric Paquet has been the Director-General of Research and Innovation for the European Commission since April 2018.
He began his career at the European Commission in 1993 in the Directorate-General for Transport – and returned there in 2007 where he led the development of the Trans-European Transport Network policy. As Director of the “European Mobility Network”, he was responsible for Europe’s transport infrastructure policy and investment strategies, the single European rail area, inland waterways and port policy.
Between 2004 and 2007 he served at EU Ambassador to the Islamic Republic of Mauritania.
