Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS

Abstract

The purpose of ETAN is to promote communication and debate at the European level between policy researchers and policy makers on important science and technology (S&T) policy topics. ETAN convenes expert working groups which review, consolidate and synthesise results of socio-economic and other research to identify issues and options for S&T policy. The task of each working group is to prepare a report in a form appropriate for discussion with policy makers and other stakeholders. ETAN�s ultimate objective is to promote a shared understanding of the issues in order to facilitate the development of more consistent, concerted and complementary European and national S&T policies.

The purpose of this report is:

- to identify and clarify the ways in which research and technological development policies can play a part in meeting the challenge presented by climate change;
- to elaborate on the objectives, scope and content of such policies;
- to identify crucial elements which need to be considered in the design of these policies.

The contents of this report are the sole responsibility of the working group, whose views do not necessarily reflect those of the Commission.
