CARISMA Discussion Paper No. 2 - Improving coherence in the post-Paris global climate governance architecture

Discussion Paper | 17 August 2017

This discussion paper examines the broader architecture for global climate governance after Paris and offers suggestions for improving coherence within international climate governance that can be implemented by Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Paris Agreement, Parties to other international legal instruments, non-Party stakeholders, and other relevant actors. Read more...

CARISMA Working Document 6 - R&D offshoring in climate technologies to emerging economies: opportunities and challenges for Europe

Working Document | 7 August 2017

This report provides an updated overview of research and development (R&D) offshoring, focusing on the key drivers and challenges for the MNCs involved. The report identifies the following main drivers for the observed increase in R&D offshoring to emerging economies: (i) cost considerations;(ii) the effective adaptation of products to local markets; (iii) the search for talent and new ideas; and (iv) the aspiration to tap into local systems of innovation. The main challenges of R&D offshoring the report identifies are: (i) cultural and organisational differences; (ii) how to manage globally dispersed R&D activities; and (iii) how to protect intellectual property rights. Read more...

CARISMA Working Document 5 - International R&I collaboration on mitigation

Working Document | 23 May 2017

Innovation in mitigation technologies is seen as a key contributor to achieving the ambitious greenhouse gas reduction goals of countries outlined in the Paris Agreement.  Research collaboration on mitigation technology and innovation between developed and developing countries offers the opportunity for trust building, knowledge sharing and allows all parties to influence the decision-making process of technology development. This report aims at selecting collaboration initiatives from governments, industries and regions, each with different characteristics, in order to identify criteria for effective collaborations between the European Union and emerging countries.

CARISMA D7.1 How should international institutions promote research and innovation technologies collaboration for climate change mitigation (May 2017)

Policy Brief | 23 May 2017

This policy brief provides guidance and recommendations to international institutions on how to get involved in climate change mitigation collaboration projects around research and innovation. It does so by looking closely at experiences of past and current research and innovation collaborations in the field of climate change mitigation. Read more...

CARISMA D7.2 Government-led international research and innovation collaboration in climate mitigation: Practical guidance for policymakers (May 2017)

Policy Brief | 23 May 2017

As collaborative research and innovation (R&I) initiatives have the potential to advance climate technology transfer across borders, in particular in developing countries, European governments have put in place various initiatives to facilitate deployment of climate technologies. In the CARISMA project, such initiatives were mapped in a background report, and discussed in a workshop involving stakeholders from government, industry, academia and international organisations. Read more...
