TRANSition Pathways and RISK Analysis

for Climate Change Mitigation and

Adaptation Strategies

Welcome to TRANSrisk

Issue #2 February 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.

IPCC WG III discussion in Brussels, February 2016

TRANSrisk partners Karl Steininger from UniGraz and Jenny Lieu from SPRU participated in the “Meeting of FP7 and Horizon 2020 projects for discussing possible contributions to the forthcoming Special Report on 1.5°C foreseen by the UNFCCC Decision at COP21 on the Paris Agreement” in Brussels. Karl presented TRANSrisk’s objectives and discussed the project’s potential to contribute to the scientific knowledge base on climate change mitigation pathways. The event also provided an opportunity for TRANSrisk to collaborate with other FP7 and Horizon 2020 projects.


TRANSrisk "Stakeholder Engagement & Qualitative Methods" Training Workshop will take place on the 9th and 10th of March 2016 in National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Athens, Greece.

TRANSrisk partners will participate in the workshop in order to discuss issues related to stakeholder engagement and research framework, as well as to provide guidance to case studies and introduce the qualitative tools that will be used.
