Funding entity Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammernarbeit (GIZ) GmbH

Participated by German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin), WiseEuropa - Fundacja Warszawski Instytut Studiów Ekonomicznych i Europe-jskich (WiseEuropa), REKK Foundation for Regional Policy Co-operation in Energy and Infrastruc-ture (REKK Foundation)


The project initiates a networks of policy makers, industry, practitioners industrial and applied researchers to facilitate mutual understanding of successfully transforming and the decarbonisation of basic materials sector into a climate friendly materials sector.

Through the network, facilitated by the project’s provision of suitable “knowledge material” and embedded in the national and EU level policy discourses, the project starts to elaborate a portfolio of key incentives (and corresponding instruments) for the large-scale use of climate friendly options for selected materials sectors. The project contributes first to inform appropriate structures and the effective coordination of innovation funding for the transformation of the basic material sector.
