Around the world, governments and industry are taking an innovative, collaborative approach in developing important clean technologies.

The Mission Innovation coalition of 24 countries and the EU, and including Australia and the UK, is building momentum around priority challenges. We’re seeing hydrogen receive record investment support and new options open for how we can reduce emissions from historically hard-to-abate sectors. How can Australia and the world best seize these new opportunities, while simultaneously rebuilding economies from recession?

Join us for a panel event featuring Professor John Loughhead, Chair of the International Mission Innovation Steering Committee, Jo Evans the Deputy Secretary of the Department of Industry Science Energy and Resources, Ita Kettleborough the Deputy Director of the Energy Transitions Commission and Anna Skarbek CEO of ClimateWorks Australia as they focus on meeting the clean technology challenge.

This wide-ranging discussion will be facilitated by Brian O’Callahan, Lead of the Oxford University Economic Recovery Project, and cover policy, financing, deployment mechanisms and the scale of response needed. Plus explore the priorities for the upcoming climate negotiations, just a year away, hosted by the UK and Italy.
