LCS-RNet 11th Annual Meeting | Technology Tansfer and international collaboration to achieving Low Carbon Societies

The eleventh annual meeting of LCS-RNet will build on the possible actions to implement the Paris Accord. The meeting will take place in Rome on 17-18 October 2019 at the ENEA Headquarters in Lungotevere Thaon Di Revel 76; around 50 outstanding speakers coming from all over the world are expected to contribute at the meeting. The overall title of the meeting is “Technology Transfer and international collaboration to achieving Low Carbon Societies”.

The international research network for Low Carbon Societies, LCS-RNet, is a network of Research Institutions and governments established during  the G7 meeting of the Ministries of Environment in Kobe (Japan - 2008) and confirmed in the G7 meeting in Syracuse (Italy - 2009) with the objective of providing science based contributions to national climate policies.

The basic nature of LCS-RNet is a platform to support and encourage information sharing and voluntary cooperation among Research Institutions, specifically in the field of LCS research. LCS-RNet also facilitates interactions between researchers and various stakeholders and delivers its findings to policy-makers to assist in science-based policy making during transitions to low-carbon societies.

Objectives of LCS-RNet are:

  • promoting information exchange and research cooperation that cover various issues relating to low carbon societies,
  • promoting the understanding about LCS through dialogues between researchers and various stakeholders including policy-makers, businesses, citizens and others to share national and sub-national visions on low-carbon societies, and
  • contributing to international policy-making processes on climate change including G process by providing research outcomes and recommendations.


LCS-RNet is a non-binding network, and its activities and outcomes are independent from official views of any governments, and while policy relevant, should not be policy prescriptive. Participation in the Network will not hamper individual research activities in any way, but is intended to enhance them.

With the remarkable success of COP21, the phase of negotiation came to an end and the world took a significant step forward to “actions” for realising low-carbon societies.

The main themes that will be tackled during the meeting will be:

  1. how can innovation and international collaboration help achieving a low carbon resilient society;
  2. material efficiency and circularity of bulk materials as core greenhouse gas mitigation levers;
  3. how to steer investments towards carbon neutral, resource efficient and resilient economy;
  4. energy-climate link.

The expected outcome of the meeting is to bring some food for thought at the next COP25 meeting that will take place this year in the period 2-13 December in Santiago (Chile).
