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.
