In a Resource-constrained World: Think Exergy, not Energy
When we think about energy, we consider it in terms of quantity. However, in a resource-constrained world, energy and in particular its efficiency, must also be appreciated from the point of view of quality, which is its ability to do work. In order to include the quality and not just the quantity of energy, we need to measure ‘exergy’. This brochure introduces the concept of exergy and provides examples of its application.Download resource

Report of Symposium on Science for Net-Zero Transition: Linking Green Objectives with Societal Development
Report of the 8 November 2021 Symposium 'Science for Net-Zero Transition', co-organised by CESAER, the International Sustainable Campus Network, Science Europe, and the University of Strathclyde, as a side-event to COP26.
Science Europe, cOAlition S, OPERAS, and the French National Research Agency (ANR) present an Action Plan to further develop and expand a sustainable, community-driven Diamond OA scholarly communication ecosystem.
The 2021 High Level Workshop on the European Research Area dealt with the topic of research culture and how to keep the research sector attractive for current and future generations of researchers.
The new statement on Research Culture envisages an ERA that focusses on the quality of research and its processes, supports scientific freedom, and promotes social diversity and inclusion, acknowledging that these conditions will, in turn, foster a productive research system.
Science Europe Position on the Involvement of Stakeholders in the ERA Governance
Report of the 7 September Science Europe Policy Workshop 'Science for the Green Transition', co-organised with CSIC, FORMAS, and UKRI. The goal was to study the roles and contributions of research organisations and governments to the green transition.
The partners of the Science for Net-Zero Symposium CESAER, the International Sustainable Campus Network (ISCN), Science Europe, and the University of Strathclyde are calling for a collaborative, systems-based approach to tackling the Net-Zero emissions challenge, and are taking immediate steps to lead by example.
The European Union’s research and innovation community urges the European Commission and UK Government to work towards a successful UK association to Horizon Europe as soon as possible.
