GWS at the EU conference on modelling for policy support: recordings and presentations now available
GWS has contributed to two sessions of the 2021 EU Conference on modelling for policy support, which took place online from 22 to 26 November and was organised by the European Commission's Competence Centre of Excellence for Modelling (CC-MOD). The presentations, recordings and reports are now available on the homepage.
In session 2, Johannes Többen presented preliminary results of the BEST project, which is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The results are based on an econometric input-output modelling approach that maps the bioeconomy in Europe with its international interactions. The respective paper Global Land Use Impacts of Bioeconomy: An Econometric Input-Output Approach was published in February 2022.
Christian Lutz's presentation "Socio-economic impacts of ambitious GHG reduction targets: Combining input-output data with energy technology representation" in Session 3 included the modelling concept and some first results as part of Low Carbon Leakage, a project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).
The online conference gathered more than 900 researchers and policymakers from European and international institutions, Member States, universities, research institutes and consultancies to identify common challenges and solutions when using models to support policymaking across all policy domains.
