Technological University Of Shannon (TUS) To Head EU Project To Boost Climate Action Leadership.

“Remarkable” project officially launched in Thurles, Co Tipperary.

A €1.7m “Remarkable” project has been proposed by the development unit at Technological University of the Shannon: Midlands Midwest (TUS) and is to be funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme.

Ireland’s newest technological university is leading a collaborative project that will aim to address the goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, as set out in the EU’s Green Deal.

Partners from a mix of universities, government and energy agencies involving Austria, Croatia, France, Sweden, Slovenia and Spain travelled to Tipperary recently to officially launch the project here in Thurles, Co Tipperary.

Mr Seamus Hoyne, (Dean of flexible learning and work-based learning) at TUS, stated that the project is particularly timely with the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference, which is being held in Glasgow within the next three weeks; thus placing the climate crisis “to the very forefront of everyone’s agenda”.
