EUKI Shorts: Hungarian EUKI Community Conference

Published: 21 October 2022

About these EUKI Shorts

In the summer of 2021, the European Commission set a framework with the “Fit for 55” package to help achieve the goals until 2030 of a Green Transition in Europe. By this year, we are facing a multi-shock from the war in Ukraine, an ongoing pandemic and weather chaos. For Hungary, the most significant green investments are imminent. The Hungarian EUKI Community Conference was kindly organized by CEEweb in cooperation with the European Climate Initiative (EUKI) and presented a unique chance for all Hungarian EUKI projects to network and learn from each other. These EUKI Shorts cover the main key take-aways from the panel discussion and reflect on the current chances and opportunities of the Hungarian Green Transition.
