ReSciPI runs for 24 months (September 2011 – August 2013) and is structured into four distinct Work Packages:
(1) A mapping and analysis of the institutions, actors and processes of science-policy interaction in Austrian climate policy in order to identify the strengths, weaknesses, potentials and obstacles for an effective knowledge brokerage.
(2) A systematic overview of different forms of climate KB in selected industrialized countries by means of a stock-taking survey.
(3) An in-depth analysis of outstanding KB models in order to get a profound understanding of how climate science and climate policy are effectively integrated.
(4) A synthesis of the insights on innovative forms of climate KB and a discussion of their transferability to the Austrian context.
