The BIOCLIMAPATHS’ consortium leverages on complementary expertise of research partners from Austria, Germany and Spain, covering a wide range of climate regions in north, central and south-Europe:
Vienna University of Economics & Business (WU) supports the project with its expertise in climate economics, ecological economics, input-output analysis and bioeconomy related research. WU leads the project as well as work package 4, and coordinates the cross-sectoral model development among work packages (work package 5).
Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) contributes its analytical and modeling expertise in research for climate and ecosystem resilience, food security and the complex relation between bioeconomy and the Sustainable Development Goals. PIK leads work package 1 and co-leads work package 5.
Universidad Pablo de Olavide (UPO) supports the project with its expertise in input-output modeling and macro-economic analysis, in particular in the field of the upcoming bioeconomy in the EU. UPO leads work package 2.
University of Seville (US) contributes its research experience in bioeconomy database construction, in particular the social accounting matrix construction of the EU bioeconomy at the member state level (Bio-SAMs), as well as its expertise in agricultural, regional and macro-economic analysis. US co-leads work package 2 and supports the project in advancing the state of the art in cross-sectoral bioeconomy modeling.
The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) brings in its novel approaches to economic forecasting, by means of hybrid agent based modeling techniques, which supports the team in identifying risk transmission channels from climate change to socio economic systems and financial regulation. IIASA leads Work Package 3 and runs the scenarios in work package 4.
