Regional technological capabilities and green opportunities in Europe (en translation)

The fight against climate change is arguably at an unprecedented critical phase. Experts concur that while there are enough capital, technology, policy instruments, and scientific knowledge to cut carbon emissions significantly by 2030, inaction due to political inertia could trigger a calamitous domino effect for both the environment and society.

The goal of this paper is to elaborate  a metric to identify regions’ green innovation potential. and check whether possessing a comparative advantage in specific technological domains is associated with a region’s capacity to develop green technologies.
