The EU low-carbon industrial policy dialogues

Framing the EU climate policy in the context of innovation, industrial and other economic policies with a view to enhancing long-term competitiveness

A joint initiative by Center for Clean Air Policy Europe and Centre of European Policy Studies

CCAP-EU and CEPS will launch the EU low-carbon industrial policy dialogues, a joint initiative and 1.5 year project (Jan 2013-Jun 2014) and hold the first meeting in Brussels on Friday 24 May 2013.
This meeting is the follow up of the meeting organised by CCAP-EU and CEPS in November 2012. It has two goals.


First of all we update the state of play on the development and implementation of industrial low-carbon roadmaps. Since the meeting in November a number of European industry sectors (e.g. steel, chemical, paper & pulp) have made progress in the process of drawing up these roadmaps. The paper sector is currently implementing the first stage of its roadmap. This meeting will brief all participants on the stage of development and implementation of each of the industrial roadmaps, including the discussion on common approaches, recommendations regarding innovation and industrial policy.


The second goal of this meeting is to identify key policy and research areas which should be explored and elaborated in further meetings. At the end of the process the forthcoming debates on these key topics will have been turned into a proposal to European and national policy makers which recommends specific policy options up to 2020 to support technology deployment, innovation and industrial policy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth as envisaged in ‘Europe 2020’.


The key areas we have identified so far are:
• Process and product innovation and the tools to implement these such as public private partnerships with sectoral consortia (such as Ultra Low CO2 Steel, ULCOS)
• Increasing industrial production value added through an enhanced value chain, supply of intangible assets, the business model transformation of the European industry, potential market opportunities for new products and services in Europe and beyond
• Social innovation (e.g. enabling and activating STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) skills towards industry)
• Access to finance for investments and de-risking venture capital and debt
