REsearch network for forward looking activities and assessment of research and innovation prospects in the fields of Climate, Research Efficiency and raw mATErials

RECREATE is a policy support network that will collect and analyse strategic information about medium and long term research and innovation trends and prospects, and will carry out forward looking analysis in the areas of climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials as described in the Commission proposal for Horizon 2020. It will analyse technology, policy and market developments as well as policies and programmes of major EU and third country research and innovation actors.

The aim of RECREATE is to create a clear cut research agenda for the Horizon 2020 priority of climate change, raw materials and resource efficiency using an RTD perspective for a transition management strategy that (a) looks at the trade-offs and synergies between raw materials, resource efficiency and climate change mitigation, (b) engages key stakeholders in a pro-active manner, and (c) has a perspective beyond the year 2020.

PIK will be involved in all WPs, with a particularly strong role in WP4 (Impact assessment) and WP5 (Foresight analysis).
