New project on political feasibility of decarbonisation

December 20, 2018

ENGAGE (Exploring National and Global Actions to reduce Greenhouse gas Emissions) project has just been awarded a major H2020 grant from the European Commission.

The project aims to develop a new generation of global climate-energy scenarios which avoid temperature overshoots and negative emissions and are selected for socio-political feasibility.

CEU's Department of Environmental Sciences and Policy is leading research on defining and evaluating political feasibility of climate-energy scenarios at the national and international level.

The project is coordinated by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (Vienna, Austria) and involves 26 partners from Austria, Belgium, Brazil, China, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, S.Korea, the Netherlands, Russia, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The project will start in September 2019 and continue for 4 years.
