Science and Technology's Role in Getting Us to Net-Zero Emissions

Chief Scientific Advisors to the European Commission on the panel hosted by Dr. Eric Lander, President Biden’s Science Advisor at US Center COP26 .

To reach net-zero-emissions by 2050, we’ll want to draw on the full creativity and capabilities of science and technology to develop, deliver, and deploy solutions—including zero-carbon energy and infrastructure that can address the energy needs of all countries.
