AdJUST Project (Advancing The Understanding of Challenges, Policy Options and Measures to Achieve a Just Energy Transition) Horizon Europe

AdJUST is a project funded by the European Union’s Horizon Europe program, carried out by an interdisciplinary European consortium consisting of 9 EU partners, 2 UK associated partners and other 11 EU associated partners.

The objectives of AdJUST are to achieve a step change in societal understanding of the distributive repercussions of the transition to climate neutrality, and to identify effective and actively-supported policy interventions to accompany climate action so that no-one is left behind.

The duration of the project is 48 months, starting on October 1st, 2022 and ending on September 30th, 2026.

The project is funded by the European Commission.

The main aim of AdJUST is to engage European public bodies, industry, civil society and researchers to design and promote a shared vision, inspiring them towards the common goal of achieving climate neutrality. It relies on state-of-the-art economic assessment tools, statistical analysis, and research approaches from other Social Sciences & Humanities (SSH) disciplines to generate methodologically-sound research results on the full range of challenges of the just transition. The project will combine research approaches from complementary disciplines with a continuous social dialogue, ensuring that the project practices open science, models procedural justice, and builds understanding, trust and capacity among citizens and other stakeholders concerning the transition to climate neutrality.

Activities: The project will develop into six work packages, one of which (WP6) is devoted to Management and Coordination. Pur si Simplu Verde will act as lead the WP2, will contribute to WP1, WP4 and WP6.
