The RE4GREEN kick-off meeting was successfully completed at The University of Bonn on the 5th and 6th of February. RE4GREEN aims to contribute to a European Research Area ethics and integrity framework for research and innovation activities designed to reduce the risk from such implications and to support the transition to a sustainable economy and society as envisioned by the European Green Deal. The consortium fruitfully worked together to plan the next steps. The work of the fifteen partners in the project is being coordinated by the University of Bonn (UBO).
