The project focuses on (a) the assessment of the current situation in Greece, (b) the recording of opinions, attitudes, value orientations and behavioral predispositions of both the general public and individual social groups, (c) the provision of technological solutions and tools that support policy proposals (data driven policy making), and (d) in the contents of public policies regarding the positive and negative effects of transitions: on individuals and households in businesses and the economy in general in processes of planning and implementation of sectoral policies, so that the digital transformation and the green transition to take place in terms of equity, resilience, sustainable development and social inclusion.

The main objectives of the project concern the following: 

  1. Collection and analysis of primary data
  2. Processing of secondary data
  3. Utilization of common research infrastructures
  4. Mapping areas that are cumulatively or differentially affected or benefited by the green transition and digital transformation
  5. Identification of occupational groups and economic sectors that are cumulatively or differentially affected or benefited by the dual transition
  6. Detection of education and training needs in digital and green skills
  7. Creation of an observatory of key indicators of the Green and Digital Transition and convergence with UN Sustainable Development Goals
  8. Creating a digital portal with cartographic and other data to help take targeted public policy measures
  9. Drafting public policy proposals for the green and digital transition
  10. Efficient and effective dissemination of research results

Implementation Methodology

The object of research and study of the project is two transitions [green and digital] in three areas [economy/businesses, individuals/households, policy planning/governance] in two dimensions of social impact [positive – negative]. Therefore the research team will follow a 2x3x2 approach.   

The center of gravity of the research falls on the regions of the country as there are differences between them in terms of the environmental burden, the penetration of digital technologies and services and also in terms of the degree of economic development (e.g. small islands). However, some actions will cover the entire territory (e.g. pan-Hellenic sample social opinion survey), while some of them will focus on individual cases of study (case studies) of special social categories such as, e.g. the immigrants. Given that digital technologies can have a double footprint, positive by contributing to the intelligent management of energy-intensive sectors to reduce pollution, but also negative by exacerbating environmental pollution, the methodological design of the project has been made by crossing two vertical Pillars and two Horizontal Axis.

Each axis corresponds to Work Packages (WPs) which are divided into individual tasks. The project includes 21 WPs distributed as follows:

  • Pillar #1: Social impact of the green transition (7 WPs)
  • Pillar #2: Social dimensions of digital transformation (5 WPs)
  • Horizontal Axis #1: Synergies of green transition and digital transformation: commons, frontrunners, laggards and multiplier benefits (7 WPs)
  • Horizontal Axis #2: Data management, digital portal, dissemination of research results, networking with actors (2 WPs)

Investment support action "Flagship actions in interdisciplinary scientific areas with a special interest in the connection with the productive tissue" / Resilience, Inclusiveness and Development: Towards a Just Green and Digital Transition of Greek Regions – TAEDR-0537352.
The action is implemented within the framework of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan Greece 2.0 with funding from the European Union - NextGenerationEU.
