REBALANCE project is a collaboration between seven European universities and an international NGO. It seeks to provide insights, resources and learning materials to help foster a rebalancing of capitalism and democracy in Europe. Within the project, CAMI team explores how the interests of the automotive industry and civil society face each other in emissions regulations for light-duty vehicles and how their juxtaposition is handled by European policy-makers. This project receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe programme under grant agreement No 101061342.
