The European Commission appointed Barbara Kux to the expert panel which will support EU climate action and help implement the Paris Agreement. The high level Panel on Decarbonisation Pathways had its first meeting hosted by the commissioner for research, science and innovation Carlos Moedas in October 2016. The nine independent advisors led by physicist Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, will deliver science-based policy-relevant advice to the European Decarbonisation Pathways Initiative (EDPI) to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. They will also present a final report in three years’ time.
