The project is entitled “ENergy TRANsitions from Coal and carbon: Effects on Societies (ENTRANCES)” and will analyze energy transitions from coal zones and carbon-intensive regions and their impacts on society.

The project has been funded by the European Commission with a budget of € 3,000,000 obtained within the prestigious and highly competitive Horizon 2020 program. The European call responds to a specific program on “Social Aspects of the transition to clean energy”, which financed the consortium led by the UDC in a competition against 18 other European consortia.

 A total of fifteen coal mining areas and intensive carbon emission regions, including As Pontes (A Coruña), will be studied by a consortium of fourteen European research groups led by the Professor of Social Psychology Ricardo García Mira (UDC).

The general objective of ENTRANCES is to develop a better theoretical and empirical understanding of cross-cutting issues related to socio-economic, socio-technical, socio-ecological, socio-cultural, socio-political and socio-psychological and gender factors of energy transition clean in the carbon and carbon-intensive European regions and aims to formulate a set of recommendations to address the associated problems.
