Work Plan

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.
