The results of the project will be discussed and further developed with partners from politics, business and civil society in an inter- and transdisciplinary forum which we called the Policy Innovation Lab. The scientific work will be commented and complemented by practical knowledge in order to guarantee the practical suitability of the proposed policy measures. The Lab offers the opportunity to reflect on scientific questions and results and adapt them based on real-world conditions.
In collaboration with the partners the project team propose solutions and policy measures which have the potential to limit rebound effects. The participatory development of the sets of measures is necessary, because policy instruments need to be practicable and politically feasible. Innovative formats of environmental governance and process design need to take into account the contextual conditions and the practical implementation potential at an early stage. The Policy Innovation Lab makes it possible to bring scientific and practice-related knowledge together and connect scientific analyses to specific actors and practical experiences. At the same time, the results of the project will immediately be communicated to actors from politics, civil society and business. In this collaborative exchange process, next to specific publications, policy briefs will be published, which summarize the solution proposals in a clear and comprehensive way.
