About the Project

ENTRANCES is a three-year project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. It advocates “Clean Energy Transition” and will develop a set of recommendations for selected Coal mining and Carbon-intensive regions in Europe. The project intends to address challenges faced by these regions taking into account multi-dimensional perspectives involving different key players at territorial, regional, national, European, and global levels.
