ECEMP 2023 Conference: Net Zero, intermediate targets, and sectoral decarbonization facing geopolitical and macroeconomic challenges

5-6 October 2023 | ONLINE

ECEMP is back with a new edition, and the submissions are now open! We are collecting papers for oral presentations in parallel sessions and skills workshops to contribute to this year's  European Climate and Energy Modelling Platform (ECEMP 2023).

This year’s conference will be planned again as an online event, but we will set up the same possibilities for interaction as last year to ensure an engaging, policy-oriented, and enjoyable conference experience.
