It is the objective of this project to position climate policy as instrument of economic innovation in the spirit of the Lisbon strategy of the European Union. Strategies with high innovation potential, which are characterized by high signal impact and political consensus, are developed for three areas (transport, housing, industry).
WegCenter-TransLand is responsible for the transport sector analysis. Strategies are developed that address high accident costs and give incentives to switch to environmentally friendly modes.
