The Erasmus+ project "Enhancing Institutional Capacities for Policy Engagement for Green and Digital Transitions" is funded by the European Commission and is being carried out by the Rhine-Main Universities together with five European partners.

The project, which will run from October 2023 to March 2026, will pilot and implement various dialogue and meeting formats, create good practice examples, a policy engagement toolkit and training materials for conducting face-to-face and virtual workshops. The activities are aimed at researchers at all career levels (R1-R4), students and representatives from politics, administration and practice.

Call for Applications


The Rhine-Main-Universities not only offer an ENGAGEgreen fellowship programme for policy professions interested in issues of green and digital transition, but are currently also developing a transnational fellowship scheme for policy professionals of EU Institutions and international organisations in cooperation with the University of Granada, Lumière University Lyon 2, and BETA Technological Centre (University of Vic/Central University of Catalonia).

This transnational scheme would enable policy professionals of the 2024/2025 fellowship cohort who are interested in issues of green and digital transitions to meet researchers in Granada, Lyon, Barcelona, or Vic in 2025.

A New Boost for Europe's Green Transition with R&I


With the 2023 revision of the European Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan, the European Commission has identified the financial, political and societal challenges that need to be addressed in order to promote the development and establishment of key technologies for the Green transition. The promotion of new technologies is a cross-cutting task for EU institutions, national governments, businesses and science alike. 

The event brought together researchers from the technical, economic and social sciences with representatives of the European Commission to discuss technical innovations for green transition and the political an financial frameworks for the developement and application of key technologies.
