Policy pathways to promote the development and adoption of cleaner technologies

Research in innovation and environmental policy has provided numerous insights into the barriers that hamper a firm's engagement in the development and use of clean technologies.

However, it still lacks empirically tested theoretical models at European level. The approach of this project integrated theoretical and methodological insights from the innovation and environmental policy realms. The project applied a definitional system that enabled empirical testing to explore the conditions under which innovative behaviour could be fostered.

Special emphasis was placed on the design of policy measures that define new environmental and technology policy pathways to tackle barriers that hamper the development and diffusion of cleaner technologies. This was done in an interactive fashion with a broad range of stakeholders from EU members and Accession Countries.

The members of the project consortium are TNO-STB/ coordinator (the Netherlands), IPTS (Spain), FHG-ISI (Germany), ITA (Austria), REC (Hungary), IEEP (England) and UGOT (Sweden).
