December marks the start of Horizon 2020 project COP 21 RIPPLES (“COP21 Results and Implications for Pathways and Policies for Low Emissions European Societies”). WiseEuropa is a part of a project consortium led by IDDRI.
Our experts will contribute to the database of national transition scenarios for NDCs and 2°C/1.5°C pathways by providing scenarios for Poland. WiseEuropa will also conduct quantitative macroeconomic modelling using a DSGE model MEWA, focusing on carbon leakage risks and assessment of alternative financing strategies for low-carbon investments. One of the project meetings is to be held by WiseEuropa in Warsaw.
Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.
