EPIGOV: Environmental Policy Integration and Multi-Level GovernanceEPIGOV aims to co-ordinate and synthesise existing research on environmental policy integration and multi-level governance and to generate new research questions and initiatives. To obtain feedback and disseminate results, EPIGOV will also involve policy-makers and non-state stakeholders.
EPIGOV is a research project on the modes of governance employed at global, EU, national and regional/local levels to support the integration of environmental concerns into other policy areas.
Relevant policy areas are transport, agricultural, and energy policy. Running over three years (2006-2008), EPIGOV brings together nineteen research institutions from ten European countries.
