The UCCRN Nordic Node, led by Dr. Martin Lehmann through the KlimaLab at Aalborg University, is a close affiliate with the UCCRN European Hub located in Paris. It is intended to bring added value to the UCCRN, in particular by tapping into what is sometimes called “The Nordic Way.” This approach embodies a close collaboration in partnerships between cities and regions, academic institutions, industry, and business, and civil society.
The Nordic countries have, individually and collectively, some of the most ambitious climate and energy policy agendas in the world. One of the Nordic Node’s aims is to ensure that experiences, results, failures, and successes from these agendas are being collected, scrutinized, analyzed, and shared within the wider UCCRN network and beyond. By doing so, the Node aims also to inspire similar actions in other countries and regions of the world and thereby help to underpin the UCCRN response agenda supported by knowledge and rigorous research.
