Decarbonization of the automotive industry

The project called Decarbonization of the automotive industry aims to enable fast and fair decarbonization of the automotive industry in the Czech Republic by bridging the gap between policy- and decision-makers and companies. The key networking activities rely on evidence-based research outputs and follow-up activities with the respective stakeholders of the automotive industry in the Czech Republic. Furthermore, the project aims to deepen the public understanding and social acceptance of the inevitable changes in the transport sector.
The project is led by the EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy with financial support from the European Climate Foundation.

Project goals:

  • To enable fast and fair decarbonization of the automotive industry in the Czech Republic.
  • To bridge the gap between policy- and decision-makers and companies.
  • To raise the social awareness and acceptance of the inevitable changes in the transport sector.
  • To help people identify with the idea of a new ecosystem of mobility.

Project activities:

  • Initial evidence-based research paper is produced, gathering the information about Czech automotive industry from different perspectives.
  • The main Czech automotive stakeholders are identified and included in the dialogue through series of meetings and roundtables about the opportunities for the Czech automotive sector.
  • Networking group is created and maintained and both the stakeholders and the public receive up-to-date information about the new ecosystem of mobility, including the empirical-driven feedback on the many news coming – Fit for 55 package, COP26 conference or the activities proposed before and during the Czech presidency of the European Council.
  • Ultimately, the key stakeholders and the public have a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges of decarbonisation of the transport and automotive industry.
