Message for RD20

The RD20 is an excellent platform for cooperation of like-minded partners to work together on science for achieving a climate neutral future. I have witnessed in the past years great first steps in the cooperation of our RD20 member organisations and I am sure that more actions and tangible outcomes will follow now. For that to happen it is important that everyone contributing to the RD20 initiative brings in her or his positive energy, in fact lots of it, to pave the way for an even more successful RD20.
