The CROSS activity comes to an end in December, 2022. With the final event “From CROSS to Co-evolution” we aim at

  • closing the CROSS activity and presenting its main achievements and results;
  • having a first in-depth look at research results that have been achieved in the first 1.5 years of SWEET EDGE, DeCarbCH, PATHFNDR, and SURE;
  • and how have they been influenced by the activities in CROSS; and
    starting the discussion on bringing together social science and energy modelling.
