workshop « integrated assessment models»

  1. 1.Goals

The Jean Monnet Module and CNRS Workshop has four goals :

(i) improve the state-of-the-art of IAMs, in order to provide robust and transparent assessments to support the design and evaluation of all mitigation policies – including those on energy efficiency and renewables – in the short to mid-term.

(ii) use of ensembles of Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs), covering the entire economy, all greenhouse gases, the wide range of climate, energy and other sectoral policies contributing to decarbonisation.

(iii) provide new and more comprehensive scientific knowledge on the design, requirements, governance and impacts of climate action at national, European and global level.

(iv) foster innovative policy-making through robust methodologies and tools and reduction of uncertainties by involving stakeholders.

(v)  create a network on IAM with PhD, Post-Doc and Researchers fellows to discuss and improve skills for modeling and prospecting scenarios.

  1. 2.Organization

The CNRS Workshop is organized by CERDI (UMR 6587) and OR2D.

Five days of discussions on modeling and challenging IAM from technical, economical and political points of view. The training is free for the CNRS members and PhD. All the others researchers have to pay 150 euros for the workshop.

  1. 3.Registration

The Workshop is opened to PhD, Post-doc and researcher fellow. Please send the registration form and a document (one page) to present your research and to explain why your coming is relevant to this event. Send them to Arnaud Diemer and Ganna Gladkykh
