Consultation Workshop on Climate Change and Blue Growth: The Black and Caspian Sea Group

25 February 2022 12:00
Workshop No. 4 “Climate Change and Industry”


In this Preparatory Living Lab (PLL) we will direct our focus on the industry sector and aim to address questions such as what someone needs to know on new technologies to make a decision or what becoming environmentally friendly practically means. The stakeholder group of this PLL is from the STI triangle (science, technology, innovation) and policy sector in the Black and Caspian Sea. The PLL is part of a Preparatory Living Lab series, which take place every 2 months until November 2023 and will provide you with the opportunity to identify climate change challenges and pathways in STI, highlight your local needs and challenges and discuss them with public administrators and stakeholders selected from your region dealing with STI policies in the Climate Change domain. It will also provide you with a unique opportunity to know how the IntelComp platform can help you to answer relevant policy questions covering the full policy life cycle, using the Systems Innovation Approach (SIA).
