Energy-intensive industry is core to the European and global economy, being a substantive contributor to the GDPs of many developed and emerging economies and employing millions. Yet it is also a sector which is under immense pressure and needs to be transformed: It is responsible for around a third of global greenhouse gas emissions, while needing to be close to zero by 2050. If Europe and the globe are to meet its net-zero targets, a fast transition to a climate-neutral industry must take place. This is an interdisciplinary challenge par excellence, and the need for expertise to address it will only continue to grow.
