September 17, 2015 – FEEM-IEFE Seminar on “Policy Challenges for the Next 50 Years. A View from OECD”

What are the key challenges that OECD and partner economies may face over the coming 50 years if underlying global trends relating to growth, trade, inequality and environmental pressures prevail? Giuseppe Nicoletti, Head of the Structural Policy Analysis Division at OECD, will discuss to what extent national structural policies can address these and other interlinked challenges, pointing out the growing need for international coordination and cooperation to deal with these issues.

September 10, 2015 - FEEM Seminar on “Energy Transitions: Directed Technical Change Meets Directed Extraction”

Industrial economies have undergone multiple transitions in their dominant energy input. In this week’s seminar Derek Lemoine, University of Arizona, develops a setting in which specialized machines must be used to convert different types of resources into useful energy, and shows that regular transitions between dominant resources arise endogenously when innovation and extraction are both directed to the most profitable resource. He also formalizes a novel market transformation motive for the common policies that mandate use of renewable energy.

September 3, 2015 - FEEM Seminar on "Spatial and Temporal Variabilities of Land Uses as Affected by Global Change: a Focus on Mediterranean Agriculture"

At the global level, climate and socio-economic changes determine the patterns of allocation and trade of resources in all markets. When considering adaptation of social and ecological systems to climate change, their inherent complexity and their spatial and temporal variabilities put the usefulness of consolidated CGE approaches under question for long term projections. Carlo Giupponi – VICCS and CMCC – and Vahid Mojtahed - VICCS -, explore the potential for integration of the Top-Down and Bottom-Up approaches with CGE models providing the macro-economic trends under the effects of global change scenarios and agent-based models used to simulate grid-based land use change dynamics, with consideration of spatial and temporal variabilities.

July 30, 2015 - FEEM Seminar on "Implications of the 2030 EU Resource Efficiency target on Sustainability"

What are the implications of achieving the EU27 Resource Efficiency target on sustainability? In this week's seminar, FEEM researcher Fabio Eboli presents an application of a model-based framework specifically conceived to assess future sustainability over time, at country and macro-regional level, across scenarios. The flexible methodology allows analyzing the effects of indicator-specific policies on the sustainability dimensions (economy, society, environment), as well as on sustainability as a whole.
