Industrial investment in green technologies in Europe
IDEA Consult has recently been selected as a member of the winning consortium for a three-year framework contract of the European Commission to monitor and quantify industrial investments in innovation and new technologies in Europe. This framework contract will provide the EC with new data, new indicators and new insights based on a very broad spectrum of databases (patents, publications, IP-trademarks, exports, production, financial and micro-economic data, social media, etc.), including web-scraping. These new insights at European, national and (where possible) regional level should contribute to the current work of the EC on 'industrial road-maps' and the support of the so-called 'industrial ecosystems'. Since 2008, IDEA has been the coordinator of the so-called "European Observatory of Key Enabling Technologies (KETs)", today succeeded by the "Advanced Technologies for Industry" project, and therefore has a long experience in developing new, innovative indicators in this field.
Three specific contracts will start as early as January 2022 to monitor investments in new technologies in 1) Circular Industries (CI), 2) Energy Intensive Industries (EII) and 3) Clean & Renewable Energies Industries (CREI). All three contracts have a duration of 2 years.
