Original Event Announcement:

At 10.30 am on the 18th May 2017 in the Botany Building, Trinity College Dublin we are holding the launch event for the IE-NETS project "Investigating the potential for Negative Emissions Technologies (NETs) in Ireland" (registration, tea/coffee from 10.00am).  This 2-hour event discussing Paris Agreement decarbonisation pathways and negative emissions feasibility for Ireland will include a keynote presentation from Dr. Sabine Fuss, leader of the working group on Sustainable Resource Management and Global Change at the Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change, based in Berlin. There will also be a presentation of the full IE-NETs project plan, inviting inputs from all interested parties. 

In particular, we would welcome all who are working on the delivery of climate change policy for government or agencies, and all environmental and technology researchers working on climate science and emissions mitigation.  We would very much appreciate the interest and views of environmental and climate science researchers, government departmental officials, agency staff from the EPA, SEAI, and Teagasc, and others working in business, electricity generation, industry or agriculture.
