Presentation of paper on "The strategic implications of the EU’s INDC’"
The EU Commission has placed eco-innovation at the heart of its policies to move towards a green economy. However, according to the European Environment Agency (2014), the potential for "green innovation in Europe" is only been partially realized.
Resource efficiency has been identified by the EU Commission (2011) as one of the seven flagship initiatives that are part of the ‘’EU 2020 strategy aiming to deliver smart, sustainable and inclusive growth’’.
This seminar explored the potential of regional approaches for European energy. It assessed whether regional approaches can hone the effectiveness of EU energy policy objectives through enhanced policy coordination at regional scale.
