TRANSrisk: News & Events

TRANSition Pathways and RISK Analysis

for Climate Change Mitigation and

Adaptation Strategies

Press Release - April 2016

 

TRANSrisk is an EU funded research project aiming to innovatively transform the way in which climate change policy pathways are developed.

TRANSrisk seeks to understand the costs, level of public acceptance, and the risks, uncertainties and co-effects associated with different mitigation pathways and low-carbon technologies.

In order to help policymakers manage uncertainties TRANSrisk will gather data via 15 case studies from the EU and other regions, and employ a variety of different models to explore scenarios and pathways.

TRANSrisk will also engage a wide range of stakeholders to help develop credible transition pathways, thus integrating quantitative and qualitative analysis in a unique and innovative way.

 

Stakeholder Engagement & Methods Training Workshop

TRANSrisk's “Stakeholder Engagement & Methods Training Workshop” took place on March 9th and 10th 2016, in Athens, Greece, with great success.

Participants had the opportunity to learn about the qualitative tools that will be used in the process of stakeholder engagement, as well as to discuss how these tools can be combined with quantitative methods.

 

Quantitative Modelling Workshop, Graz, Austria

The next TRANSrisk workshop will take place on May 19th and 20th, 2016, in Graz, Austria. Its main objective is to investigate further the computational tools that will be used in order to quantify the risks and uncertainties that are involved in the transition pathways towards a low carbon energy system in TRANSrisk case study countries.

More particular, the workshop will focus on clarifying how to make results comparable, further adjust and agree on specific issues in scenario settings / reference parameters and thus enable a proceeding to allow for consistent conclusions from the models and their applications in case studies.

The TRANSrisk project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 642260.
