09/22/2020 Turning the urgent challenge of adapting to climate change into an opportunity to make Europe resilient, climate-prepared and just – this is the aim of the EU Mission Board report that has been released today, in the course of the European Research and Innovation Days 2020. Johan Rockström, Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), took part in the Mission Board to support strengthening the role of science in the areas of adaptation and resilience and the associated social and technological transformation processes.

Together with FransTimmermans (Executive Vice-President of the European Commission), Eimear Manning (All-Atlantic Ocean Youth Ambassador) and Yousef Yousef (CEO LG Sonic; European Innovation Council Advisory Board member), Rockström discussed the key messages of the EU Mission Board report. They also took an in-depth look at the research and innovation contribution to the European Green Deal and the economic recovery from the Corona crisis, with a special focus on climate, ocean, biodiversity - and the perspective of the youth.
