Godefroy Grosjean


Godefroy works in the ENTRACTE project, funded by the EU 7th Framework Programme. Its goal is to investigate the interaction between the EU ETS and other climate policy instruments. Godefroy’s research addresses the reform of the EU ETS looking specifically at institutional design (delegation in the EU ETS) as well as the sectoral and geographical expansions of the trading scheme.


Godefroy holds an M.Sc. in Economics (Maastricht University) and a Dual Degree Master of Public Administration / Public Policy (London School of Economics / Hertie School of Governance).
