Post-Paris policy relevance: Climate science-policy interactions and impacts after the Paris Agreement

Awarded: NOK 0.16 mill.

In order to meet the objectives set out in the Paris Agreement, fruitful science-policy interactions are key. However, the scientific literature is ambiguous and inconclusive in terms of how such fruitful science-policy interfaces can be established, maintained and further developed, not least across policy levels and -contexts. The purpose of this project is to cross-fertilize, release synergies and build new insights between two academic communities heavily involved in the academic conversation on science-policy interactions. The group on Science and Technology Studies (STS) in the Department of Sociology and Work Science at the University of Gothenburg is an internationally recognized research unit on science-policy interactions. CICERO is one of the world’s leading climate research institutes and a central contributor to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The institute's mission is to produce insight in dialogue with stakeholders that help solve the climate challenge and strengthen international climate cooperation. This project will link these two academic communities more closely together both in terms of staff, academic scope and networks, and holds great potential for developing novel and innovative insights in the issue area, advancing science-policy interactions - and knowledge-action interactions more broadly - both scholarly and practically.
