Survey I: Modelling for the European energy transition
The first survey is aimed at energy modellers as well as decision-makers from business, politics, and civil society. The survey will enable the researchers to understand the diverse needs for energy models, supporting decision-making for the European Energy Transition and to identify development deficits. These insights will be used to improve existing SENTINEL models and inform the development of a modelling platform, which is currently being developed by an interdisciplinary consortium funded through the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
This survey is being conducted as part of the the SENTINEL project, and in collaboration with its sister project, openENTRANCE. The survey is built around the following questions: What requirements do you have for energy models for the European Energy Transition? What questions should these models be able to answer?
The survey can be accessed online through to 31 August 2020. IASS researchers Hannes Gaschnig and Diana Süsser are happy to answer any questions regarding this survey or the related study.
Survey 2: The impact of the pandemic
The coronavirus pandemic has changed our lives and ways of doing research. Many of the stakeholders involved with research projects funded under the EU's Horizons 2020 programme have been affected by the pandemic's unprecedented societal and economic impacts. In response, researchers from the SENTINEL project have set up an online survey to learn more about how the crisis is impacting stakeholder engagement activities around energy research projects. The survey is aimed at researchers responsible for stakeholder engagement in project coordination or interest group liaison roles.
The survey is conducted by the IASS, the Renewables Grid Initiative and the University of Piraeus in the framework of the EU SENTINEL project, and in collaboration with the EU PANDORA project (fisheries science). The central question is: How has the stakeholder engagement of your energy research project been affected by the coronavirus pandemic?
The survey can be accessed online through to 31 August 2020. IASS researcher Diana Süsser is happy to answer any questions regarding this survey or the related study.
