Many countries have set up ambitious GHG reduction targets, often with the long-term goal to become climate-neutral by 2050 or before, and some of them are implementing various types of mission-oriented innovation policies to contribute to meet these targets. The aim of this ‘Panel discussions’ session is to gather representatives of different relevant policy communities (policy research and analysis, international and national policy making) in a structured framework in order to collectively reflect upon the transformative potential of different types of mission-oriented innovation policies (MOIPs).
The main questions that are addressed in this session are the following:
– To what extent can different types of MOIPs be used to engage a wide set of actors to develop the kinds of transformative policy and undertake collective action necessary to achieve net zero objectives?
– What are the prevailing external (e.g. overall strategic and policy context for net zero) and internal (e.g. design and funding features) conditions to exploit the ‘transformative potential’ of MOIPs?
The ‘Panel discussions’ session will consist of:
– An introduction setting out the main questions and the framework that is used to compare the different missions that aim to reduce GHG emissions, based on an ongoing OECD project.
– Presentations of four missions aiming to reduce GHG emissions
– An interactive session with the audience using an online whiteboard application to co-define the contextual enablers and barriers to transformative missions, and the design principles of transformative missions
Rebecca Santos and Bora Kim (both from OECD/STP) will support the session moderation’
