The Institute is committed to being a central focal point for research insights and policy solutions within Europe, and connecting that work internationally.

Our research



Achieving climate neutrality requires a rapid and profound transformation of our societies. Strong analytical capacity can be harnessed to design transition pathways which are feasible and equitable.

Climate Impacts
& Adaptations

Understanding how agents, as well as physical and biophysical systems, react to climate change.

Climate Finance
& Macroeconomics

The macroeconomic repercussion of environmental challenges are key for designing a sustainable transition.


Solving climate change will not happen without an adequate distribution of the efforts and an inclusive approach.

Sustainable Innovation
& Digitalization

Reaching climate-neutral economies and societies in a just and equitable way requires innovation of both technological and social systems.

Data Science

Solving ecological problems understanding how people and organizations behave.

Human Health
& Migration

Environmental change affects migration, and in turn, migration provides ways to escape ecological risks.


Urban areas are at the forefront of climate mitigation adaptation policies, being a place where a range of actors interact in different economic activities
