Technology Workshop (28-29 May 2013)

This workshop intended to strengthen current and future efforts to analyse technological change and to introduce endogenous technology dynamics in large-scale energy or integrated assessment models. The workshop combined the perspectives of researchers involved in climate policy modelling – such as performed for the IPCC or EU research projects like AMPERE or ADVANCE – with those of researchers more specialized in the economics of technological change.

 

First Day (Monday, May 27)
