In the framework of the first KEEST-project, a concept for the establishment of the "Japanese-German Cooperation Council on the Energy Transition" was prepared. Although some concrete results could be achieved, a number of important details are still open. Until the planned kick-off meeting of the Cooperation Council takes place, further design and negotiation steps are still necessary. Therefore, in KEEST-2 open questions especially regarding funding, the selection of Council members, working principles of the Council, design of the study programme, the communication strategy as well as questions regarding the overall organisation should be answered.
The project is funded and supported by the German Environmental Foundation (DBU).
