This side event will focus on proven mechanisms that foster technological collaboration and partnerships to enhance and support climate research and innovation. It will highlight exemplary projects and innovation actions resulting from clean energy technology partnerships. A number of experiences will be shared that promote North-South participation and driving clean energy transitions within wind and circular economy technologies. We will hear from panelists that will highlight the wealth of relevant climate technology information for the benefit of climate technology researchers, entrepreneurs, and innovators. This information provides an opportunity and structured basis to develop collaborations (N-S/S-S/triangular) and to build upon existing technologies. Experiences will also be shared on opportunities for collaboration within clean energy transitions and on how to stimulate innovation and supports to connecting providers and seekers of green technologies.
