New European Commission launches European Green Deal

EuChemS congratulates Ursula von der Leyen on her position as the new Commission President and wishes her all the very best in her endeavors.

Earlier this autumn, EuChemS has written an Open Letter to European Commission President von der Leyen, on the need to revise the title of the portfolio for Commissioner Mariya Gabriel to ‘’Education, Research, Innovation and Youth’’ and we are glad to have been heard.

During her first speech as the new Commission President at the global climate conference COP25 in Madrid, Spain, Ursula von der Leyen relaunched discussions on budget matters for research. To reach the goal of climate neutrality in the framework of a European Green Deal, €1 trillion of investment over the next ten years should be unleashed to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions on the continent by 2050.
