Join the Conversation: Charting the Future – Innovation for Carbon-Neutral Islands in Europe


In today’s rapidly evolving world, Research & Innovation (R&I) serves as the driving force behind progress, especially in the realm of sustainability and climate resilience. The challenges posed by climate change and energy sustainability have never been more pressing, and R&I is illuminating the path toward a carbon-neutral future.

The European Union and its Member States have rallied their commitment to this carbon-neutral future through National Energy and Climate Action Plans (NECPs). These plans provide the essential roadmap towards a cleaner, greener, and more prosperous Europe. What powers the success of these ambitious plans? Research & Innovation (R&I) stands at the forefront, propelling us into an era of energy efficiency, renewable technologies, and environmental preservation. It transforms these targets from mere aspirations into tangible achievements.

Under the auspices of the EU-funded Mediterranean Island Cleantech Innovation Ecosystem (MICIE) project, two Mediterranean islands, Cyprus and Malta, have joined forces to accelerate their efforts in research and innovation (R&I) to meet their climate and energy targets.

The MICIE consortium project extends a warm invitation to you, our valued stakeholders, to participate in a crucial discussion on boosting Research & Innovation (R&I) to decarbonize the Mediterranean islands, with a special emphasis on Cyprus and Malta.
