Project description

Corporate R&D role in EU Green Deal objectives

Corporate research and development (R&D) initiatives could play an instrumental role in achieving the EU’s Green Deal and sustainability goals. The EU-funded GLORIA 2020-21 project will work to better understand the R&D performance of the sector’s top investors from a global competitiveness perspective. To that end, the EU Industrial R&D Investment Scoreboards will be developed towards a more significant instrument related to the directionality of corporate research and innovation (R&I), systematically adding supplementary indicators, activating changes in its use and in industry and becoming complementary to the sustainable finance taxonomy. The project will exploit JRC-internal synergies under the leadership of JRC B3 to cover the entire R&I competitiveness scheme, adding related and more specific information to the key sectors of energy and transport.

Objective

The main expected impact of this proposal is the better understanding of corporate Research & Development (R&D) efforts in relation to the green deal and sustainability objectives, starting from the top R&D investors in their global competitiveness perspective. For this, the EU Industrial R&D Investment Scoreboards will be developed towards a more meaningful tool regarding the directionality of corporate Research & Innovation (R&I), and systematically include additional indicators, triggering change of its use and change in industry, becoming complementary to the sustainable finance taxonomy. A key aspect here is that, under leadership of JRC.B3 the project will exploit JRC-internal synergies (within Directorates B and C) for covering the global R&I competitiveness picture and adding relevant and more specific information regarding energy and transport as key sectors for the new priorities. Policy impact will also benefit from enhanced co-creation between the project partners.
