We are soliciting applications from bright researchers motivated to work on the defining issue of climate change to join our research institute. Career paths are designed for researchers to grow in a nurturing environment with guided supervision and clear steps toward tenure.  Due to an expanded portfolio of projects and our belief in multi/disciplinarity, we […]

Inspired by the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Assessment Reports (IPCC AR5 and AR6), LOCALISED developed its business vulnerability assessment framework to reflect the latest knowledge in the field of climate change risk assessment. Using the IPCC Risk Framework, the risk imposed by decarbonization pathways to regional businesses and industries can be calculated through […]

Due to climate change, more frequent heatwaves will increase the global demand for electricity by 7% by 2050, and by 18% by 2100, calling for either considerable energy investments or strong mitigation strategies. A new study published today in Nature Communications by researchers from the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, the European Institute on Economics and […]

We have the technologies. They are affordable. Experts of the “Structure for a green transition for mobility and infrastructure” established by the Italian Ministry for Sustainable Infrastructure and Mobility explain how to reduce emissions and energy use for Italy’s transport sector in an article published today in Nature Italy.  “Technologies that allow Italy to reduce transport […]

A new paper in Oxford Open Climate Change, published by Oxford University Press, indicates that, while various models to measure the economic impact of reducing carbon emissions show low current economic benefits, after 2050, most scenarios show higher benefits than costs. These benefits are the largest in developing countries. Climate stabilization pathways reviewed by the […]

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published the next major assessment of climate policy, the report “Mitigating Climate Change“, as the third volume of the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6). Three Authors from the European Institute on Economics and the Environment were specifically contributing to these chapters: Chapter 1: Introduction and Framing, Valentina Bosetti Chapter […]
