Research is organised into three sub-packages:

  1. «Internal characteristics of European countries and effects on EU energy and environmental governance»,
  2. «Global trends and their effects on EU energy and environmental governance», 
  3. «Innovation, integration, and competition in and through policy networks».

Research and activities are undertaken by a consortium of 16 researchers based in research institutions and universities in Australia, Britain, China, Hungary, Italy, Norway and Spain with a strong track-record of collaboration on these issues).
