Researchers from the Department of Energy in Tunis

A cooperation initiative to promote low-emission energy development

Researchers from the SESAM group (Sustainable Energy Systems Analysis and Modelling) of the Department of Energy of the Politecnico di Milano held a workshop on “Science Diplomacy and Evidence-Based Policymaking” in Tunis on 26 October, followed by a three-day technical training addressed to members of a Tunisian consortium for energy-economy modeling as well as faculty members and students of the National Engineering School of Tunis (ENIT).

The activity, which involved SESAM researchers Diana Shendrikova, Francesco Tonini and Giacomo Crevani, coordinated by Prof. Matteo Vincenzo Rocco, was conducted within the framework of the project DIAPOL-CE – Policy Dialogue and Knowledge Management on Low Emission Development Strategies”, commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) and implemented Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.

DIAPOL-CE assists policymakers in building national energy and low-emission development strategies on the best available knowledge and strengthens the link between decision-makers and academia in countries of Western Asia and Africa.
