Background: Why a JTPeers Experts Database?

This database offers you and your region:

Access to specialised knowledge: Just transition involves complex challenges and requires specialised knowledge in areas such as energy production and energy systems, job creation, social inclusion, and sustainable economic development. A database of experts enables stakeholders to easily gain access to professionals with the specific expertise needed to address these challenges effectively.

Best practices and lessons learned: The database serves as a repository of best practices and lessons learned from experts who have successfully navigated similar transitions. Accessing this wealth of knowledge can help regions avoid pitfalls, accelerate progress, and implement effective strategies.

Networking and collaboration: The database facilitates connections between professionals working on just transition across the EU. It encourages networking and collaboration, enabling the sharing of experiences, innovative ideas, and successful approaches. This collaborative environment fosters a community of practice, further enhancing the collective expertise in the field.

Efficiency and time savings: Searching for experts individually can be time-consuming and challenging. A centralised database streamlines the process, making it quicker and more efficient to identify and engage with the right experts. This saves valuable time for stakeholders involved in the just transition process and allows them to focus on implementation and progress.

Improved decision-making: Access to a diverse range of experts empowers decision-makers with multiple perspectives and insights. This broader understanding enables informed decision-making based on evidence, experience, and expertise, leading to more effective and successful just transition initiatives.
