Reshaping Science-Policy Interactions in Climate Policy: International Stock-Taking and Lessons for Austria

ReSciPI strives to provide policy‐relevant insights on how climate science and climate policy can be integrated in a more productive way. The project builds on an innovative theoretical approach that clearly goes beyond mere ‘knowledge transfer’ and conceptualizes science‐policy interactions in an iterative and reflexive manner (‘knowledge brokerage’, KB). Specifically, ReSciPI aims to: (i) map and analyze 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 KB; (ii) provide an overview of different forms of institutionalization of climate KB in selected industrialized countries (stocktaking survey); (iii) get a profound understanding of how climate science and climate policy are effectively integrated in innovative KB models (in‐depth cases); (iv) to provide options on how to improve institutions and processes of KB by synthesizing the empirical in‐sights gained and critically reflecting with relevant stakeholders, preferably in the ACRP Forum, on how a productive climate science‐policy interface in Austria and beyond could look like.
