Climate Strategies is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that aims to improve policy in the fields of climate change, energy and sustainable development by bridging the gap between decision-makers and researchers across Europe and internationally. It has three roles:
Inspirer: To identify and test with stakeholders, funders and researchers new research topics, preferably multi-disciplinary and always with potential policy leverage;
Convener: To find suitable and fundable topics for projects, conferences and other events where researchers and policy-makers can come together;
Translator: To interpret and publicly communicate research outputs so that they can be used by policy makers, business stakeholders and civil society.
