The Economic Logic of Open Science in Fusion Energy Research: a Systemic Approach to Policymaking

EasyChair Preprint no. 9714

3 pagesDate: February 14, 2023


1. Background and Rationale Climate change is a grand challenge of our era. From an economic point of view, government intervention is justified to address two market failures: one environmental and one technological. This paper focuses on the development of one of such greener technologies: nuclear fusion, which is the reaction that occurs within the stars, including the Sun, to generate their own energy. However, fusion-energy research is still on the edge between science and technology because it still requires large investment in basic research before developing technological applications. 2. Methodology The methodology employed by this paper is to interview key players in both communities to gather information on how they view open science in fusion-energy research 3. Significance The systematic approach to policymaking derived from this paper can provide a policy toolkit for managing complex and dynamic technologies in several other sectors, such as aerospace. Moreover, the implications for sustainability derived from this paper can assist the policymaking system with a multicriteria approach to assist the formulation and implementation of climate-change mitigation policies in other technologies of public interest, such as transportation.
