Rotari Annual Lecture "Green Windows of Opportunity for Latecomer Development in Renewable Energies"

  • Keynote Speaker Prof. Roberta Rabellotti - Dipartimento di Scienze Politiche e Sociali, University of Pavia

There is increasing recognition that policies aimed at meeting environmental targets may open new economic development paths, especially for emerging economies, given the green transformation and related techno-economic paradigm changes across institutional, market and technological domains.  Looking at China, it is clear the importance of institutional transformation to create “green windows of opportunity” (GWOs) for economic structural change associated with the green economy. Green windows of opportunity represent a set of favourable, temporary conditions for “latecomers” to catch-up in the long run in sectors central to the green economy.


The event will take place at Palazzo Prodi - Auditorium. Pre-registration is required: please fill in the on-line form.
