About the Project

Research Ethics and integrity for the GREEN transition (RE4GREEN) is a three-year project funded by Horizon Europe aiming to develop an encompassing framework supporting the transition to a sustainable economy and society. This framework will address ethics and integrity concerns in two key areas: 1) research and innovation with potential environmental and climate impacts and 2) knowledge and technologies developed to tackle environmental and climate challenges.
