Information network on the technology of utilisation and sustainability of energy resources

The overall objective of the project is to raise public awareness for the benefits and the possible drawbacks of the utilization of various energy resources and technological developments in respect of sustainability and thereby bridge the gap between science and the public. The network will initiate a true dialog between researchers, scientists and the public for understanding the relationships between energy, environment, technologies and economic growth, taking into account societal values and natural and human resources. The dialog is intended to be uniquely "provocative" but also moderated in a manner. A true virtue of the proposal is that representatives of various competing energy sectors will now sit and work together for achieving the above central objective. Another true virtue of the initiative is the application of a set of original methods and tools to be applied in order to successfully raise public awareness.
