TRANSition Pathways and RISK Analysis

for Climate Change Mitigation and

Adaptation Strategies

Issue #4 September 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.


TRANSrisk Case Studies Workshop in Brighton

TRANSrisk Case Studies Workshop will take place on October 4th and 5th, 2016, at University of Sussex in Brighton, United Kingdom.

All the results presented will be discussed and validated by the TRANSrisk Scientific Advisory Board Members

The aim of the second day is the peer support of case studies & the next steps planning. Small discussion groups will discuss among others the development of pathways in case studies and quantitative and qualitative approaches. The workshop will continue with comparisons across country case studies and discussion regarding the submission of the respective report.
