    Title of presentation: Green missions and technologies across

    Abstract of presentation: The success of the green transition relies heavily on a systemic development of technologies and solutions, in close cooperation and coordination between relevant players in the whole value chain. With the Green Research Strategy from September 2020, the Danish government highlights four specific green research and innovation missions that will contribute to the green transition nationally. The four missions are:
    •                        Capture and storage or use of CO2
    •                        Green fuels for transport and industry (Power-to-X, etc.)
    •                        Climate- and environment-friendly agriculture and food production
    •                        Circular economy with a focus on plastics and textiles
    The missions are implemented through Innovation Fund Denmark and the fund is in 2021 investing 700 mio. DKK in mission-driven green research and innovation partnerships, which will accelerate the development of cutting-edge solutions ranging all the way from strategic coherent research to commercialization, with an equal focus on short-, mid - and long term impact.

      Cross-disciplinary collaborations bring machine learning and artificial intelligence to new arenas. The potential impact of AI in the domains of energy and climate is huge, from effects on energy supply and demand management, over improving the understanding how human actions are affecting the climate, to helping to reduce negative effects of greenhouse gas emissions.
      In this session you can learn how state-of-the art AI methods can help companies, organisations and researchers analyze, model and interpret data related to climate and energy that have previously been too challenging to tackle.  We show and discuss how AI can affect the future of energy and climate and how it could support missions for a greener future.
