COP19 side event: Beyond Technology Transfer
22nd November 2013 @ 1:15 pm - 2:45 pm
The STEPS Centre’s energy and climate change co-convenor Dr Rob Byrne is presenting at a side event for COP19 entitled: Beyond Technology Transfer: Insights for the Technology Mechanism from low C energy policy research, organised by The Sussex Energy Group (University of Sussex) and SusTec (ETH Zurich)
Low-carbon technology transfer is a central aim of the Technology Mechanism (TM). This event will draw on insights from new social science research on innovation and development to discuss how the TM can best deliver on its mandate. The event will focus on the role of national technological capabilities in low-carbon technology research, development and deployment (RD&D) that fulfill the needs of developing countries. We will also discuss implications for the specification and implementation of supportive and collaborative actions under the TM.
Short inputs from international organizations and academic researchers will be followed by a plenary session on experiences with capacity building, local private sector involvement, and the various aspects of ‘national appropriateness’ of mitigation and adaptation actions.
