Blueprints for an integration of science, technology and environmental policy

Objective

S&T policies are a key factor for sustainability but the instruments must be adapted within a broader framework that stresses the importance of policy coherence and of inter-linkages within innovation systems. Policy coherence implies improved integration of S&T and environmental policies and thus an enhanced dialogue and coordination between science and technology and environmental policy makers and researchers. Thus the focus of the BLUEPRINT network is to enhance dialogue and initiating partnerships in S&T and environmental policies that can contribute to both sustainable development and industrial competitiveness. BLUEPRINT is the short name for "Blueprints for an Integration of Science, Technology and Environmental Policy". In five workshops and a conference the network will undertake an in-depth examination or the relation between S& T and environmental policies, considering the complexity of factors in influencing innovation and environmental decisions along value chains.
