Science and Innovation Minister Diana Morant has recalled that some climate challenges can only be effectively addressed and accelerated through international cooperation.
Spain joins the global Mission Innovation 2.0 initiative with the aim of strengthening its alliances at international level and promoting the decarbonization of the economy in favor of sustainability.
The Ministry of Science and Innovation will lead Spanish participation in this initiative, where it will work in coordination with other government ministries and institutions such as the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge, which is in charge of energy policy in Spain .
The Science and Innovation Minister has recalled that some climate challenges can only be effectively addressed and accelerated through international cooperation. Therefore, Mission Innovation plays a fundamental role in coordinating Spain’s work with that of other countries and driving the energy transition forward.
“We believe that our country’s contribution to this initiative will be important as we are one of the leading innovators in renewable energy and fully committed to the green and energy transition,” he stressed.
Mission Innovation, an initiative to promote clean energy
Mission Innovation is a global initiative involving 23 countries around the world together with the European Commission that aims to catalyze action and investment in research, development and demonstration to make clean energy affordable, attractive and for… to make all accessible. These actions will accelerate progress toward the Paris Agreement goals and pathways to carbon neutrality in 2050.
By participating in Mission Innovation 2.0, Spain will be able to share knowledge with other members by collaborating in areas where it operates along the entire value chain, thereby accelerating the climate and energy transition in a more profitable way than it would be possible to do without the synergies of international cooperation.
In particular, Spain has signed the joint declaration to launch Mission Innovation 2.0, published at the Ministerial Conference in May 2021, further consolidating its members’ commitments under the Paris Agreement. First participation in the missions “Green Powered Future” and “Clean Hydrogen”.
Spain’s inclusion in Mission Innovation was announced during the Global Clean Energy Action Forum, which will be held in Pittsburgh on September 21-23, 2022. This event, which brings together the joint call of the 13th Clean Energy Ministerial and the 7th Mission Innovation, had the participation of Secretary General for Innovation, Teresa Risk.
