ROLES Newsletter Nr 3 published


Introduction on the recently issued ROLES newsletter.

The Roles project completed two years and with that our intensive fieldwork phases, to now
enter the third and final phase of our project, where we analyse case insights and synthesise across cases.

Since we began in 2020, stakeholder engagement has remained absolutely critical to ROLES’s success.
Our project is all about exploring how European city-regions could use digitalisation as a way to accelerate
decarbonisation in their energy and transport sectors. But we are particularly interested in how city-regions
might do this inclusively, in a way that creates social benefits for their citizens – like reducing fuel and
transport poverty, for example.

But we can’t do this alone. Inclusive pathways to decarbonisation have to be co-designed with stakeholders
who understand their city-region’s energy and transport systems, and whom these system exclude.
