Northern Netherlands in Transition

Location:Leeuwarden, NL
Date:03.12.2019 - 04.12.2019

The decision by the Dutch government to stop extracting natural gas from the Groningen gas field will have major economic implications for the Northern Netherlands.

To tackle these challenges, the four largest Northern cities have started a trajectory with the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC). The main goal of this trajectory is to develop a concrete Action Roadmap that prepares the Northern economy and labour market for the upcoming energy transition.


To help us draft this Roadmap, we have invited experts from regions that faced similar economic transitions to inspire us with their lessons learned on December 3rd. On December 4th, while the Northern stakeholders work together on drafting the Action Roadmap, we will organize site visits for our international guests to some very innovative projects related to the Northern Netherlands in transition. We are pleased to hereby invite you to attend both days of this two day conference. In this invitation, you will find the program and some practical information.
