In this report, we present the journeys of 21 policyworkers from across Europe who participated in the Policy Fellowship programme of Energy-SHIFTS project. This programme aimed to establish research-policy dialogue, by directly connecting researchers working across the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) with those on the energy policy ‘frontline’. In the first half of 2020, our 21 Policy Fellows – which included one team of three – participated in online conversations and exchanges with 3-6 carefully matched energy-SSH researchers, or Policy Associates.
