Perform basic and applied research
Perform basic and applied research in the fields of nature conservation and environmental protection, ecologically sustainable resource management as well as environmentally friendly economic, political, and social development at international and European level. The ultimate goal is to explore the feasibility of different solutions, advise and provide results that actuate forward-thinking across society.
Safeguard people from climate change
Safeguard people from Climate Change while at the same time address the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as those are set by the United Nations. To this end, our members investigate different actions, such as food, energy or global and national equity, along with their effects on the prospects of serving the SGDs.
Develop new innovative technologies
Develop new innovative technologies focusing on environmental protection, resource management and economic, political, and social development. Support the evolution of tools that will enable resource use optimization to mitigate the impact of Climate Change on buildings, systems and workflows and to recover quickly minimizing business disruption adverse effects.
Synthesis and analysis
Synthesize and analyze existing knowledge so as to generate robust procedures for assessing the Climate Change impacts and their socio-economic consequences in several different sectors, such as the use of land, the agriculture, the forests, the hydrological systems as well as the human health and well-being.
Perform economically oriented research
Perform economically oriented research that defines the components of political, economic, and other social sciences using all available - practical and conceptual – analytical means. Substantial effort is directed towards addressing and mitigating the consequences of the ongoing climate crisis though communicating the findings to state leaders to promote the implementation of long-lasting measures.
Increase the quality of economic policy
Increase the quality of economic policy making within Europe and beyond, by promoting high quality, policy-relevant economic research, and communicating it worldwide, fostering economic development while preserving the natural assets by building up collaboration and promoting collective efforts across business and finance communities.
Assessing the future impact of climate change
Assess the future impact of Climate Change with the simultaneous emergence of new technologies. Emphasis is put on enabling the efficient utilization of renewable energy sources to replace the existing ones in order to maintain the social and economic development.
Forum for discussion
Provide a discussion forum among scientists and professionals involved in climate resilience research and provide opportunities for opinion exchange and knowledge transfer among its members.
