Reducing global emissions and use of clean sustainable energy sources is critical for attaining the net zero emissions goal by 2050 defined by the UN Climate Action.

Activation of small molecules to be used as or from clean fuel sources and value-added chemicals is a large step toward achieving this goal. As the German and Israeli goals are aligned in this aspect, it is crucial to develop new collaborations and networks between the countries, which will lead synergistic work in these fields to accelerate the development of these important solutions.
