PERSON – energy transition is social transition

The Northern Netherlands are working on climate adaptation and energy transition using an integrated approach involving all layers of society. The University of Groningen Social Sciences Faculty is one of the initiators of the European Platform for Energy Research in the Social-economic Nexus (PERSON).

PERSON brings together independent Social Sciences and Humanities experts from all over the world, representing the top research on energy in their field. PERSON aims to establish a platform for dialogue that integrates knowledge on ways to encourage a sustainable energy transition of different SSH disciplines, and fosters knowledge sharing between SSH scientists, governments, industry and social institutions.
