1. Research on climate change: e.g. monitoring, modelling, mitigation and social consequences
2. Science for the energy transition: e.g. innovative concepts and technologies for a sustainable large-scale supply of renewable energy connecting different sectors and industries, in particular energy storage and distribution; energy efficiency; systemic approach of research for the energy transition including economic, ecological, and social challenges, the supply of raw materials, and prospective scenario development and analysis.
3. Research to understand the Earth system: e.g. observation of the Earth system and attribution of environmental and climate changes, including anthropogenic changes to understand processes, interaction scales, risks and thresholds.
The programme also aims to network researchers. Germany and France will organize joint networking activities for the laureates in order to encourage networking between the laureates and with other international researchers in their discipline.
The French call has already been published. For more information about the French programme part see www.makeourplanetgreatagain.fr.
