Innovation is key for the energy transition as it allows to reduce the cost of existing low-carbon technologies and to develop new clean technologies together with new uses. The governance of climate and innovation policies involves several actors: states, partly constrained by international agreements, local jurisdictions (cities, regions), transnational initiatives, multinational companies and NGOs. All these policies are usually fragmented and not coordinated.
The objective of the conference is to improve our understanding of the interaction between climate and innovation policies in this multi-layer governance landscape by bringing together scholars in economics working on innovation policies, international environmental agreements, and environmental federalism. The conference main focus is on innovation policies, however climate-related policies in agricultural, food or transport sectors are also welcome.
We encourage submissions of both theoretical and empirical papers that explore the aforementioned topics.
This conference benefits from a financial support from ADEME.
