ADEME The French Agency for the Environment and Energy Management

  • Created in 1992

  • Areas of intervention

    • Air quality, Waste reduction, Energy management, Environmental management, Rehabilitation of polluted sites, Renewable energy, Noise

  • Implementation of public policy through:

    • Facilitating and enabling R&D

    • Advice and support for decision-makers

    • Dissemination of best practices          

  • Budget:

    • over 260 million euros per year

  • « ADEME’s networking approach to innovation for sustainable development »

    ADEME’s R&D activities

    • From finalised basic research to industrial development

    • Stimulating and enabling innovation:

      • Funding: (55 Million euros/year)

        • R&D projects, PhD grants

      • Facilitating collaborationand exchange of tacit knowledge between players

  • Facilitating European & International scientific cooperation:

    • Funding networks & projects

    • European Technology Platforms

    • National Contact Point for FP6

  • « ADEME’s networking approach to innovation for sustainable development »

    Challenges faced by ADEME’s Innovation Policy

    • Fostering circulation of knowledge

    • Fostering cooperation

    • Respecting the 3 dimensions of sustainable development: Economical, Environmental, Social

      • Demand is not the only driver, environmental and social performance must be taken into consideration too

    • Integrating multiple actors in policy-making

      • Main players:Science, technical, users, regulators

    Facilitating public-private R&D partnerships:AGRICE

    • Network / programme established in 1994

    • Objectives:

      • Creating new markets for agricultural products: energy, chemical and materials

      • Renewable resources and limiting greenhouse gas emissions by

  • Networking

    • Steering

    • R&D projects

  • « ADEME’s networking approach to innovation for sustainable development »

    Céline Phillips, French Agency for the Environment and Energy Mangement


    French Technological Research and Innovation Networks (RRIT)

    • Established in 1998

    • Fostering public-private partnerships

    • R&D programmes:

      • Calls for proposals - projects carried out by consortia

  • Networking at all levels

    • programme steering committee, management & coordination, collaborative projects

  • Examples

    • Fuel cells: the « PaCo network »

    • Land transport: PREDIT

    Other recent initiatives

    • Club CO2 (2002)

      • capture and sequestration of CO2

      • pooling of:

        • Public and private players

        • scientific disciplines

  • Facilitating the emergence of Research Foundations

    • Energy-buildings (March 2005)

    Conclusions

    • Innovation will only occur if science, technics, users and regulators cooperate and exchange knowledge

    • Sustainable development implies that the market cannot be the only driver – environmental and social performance must also be taken into consideration and a wider range of players involved

    • Research and innovation networks which enable:

      • cooperation within R&D projects

      • Integration of muliple actors in policy-making

        are now proven to be a valid tool for ADEME’s public intervention
