IIASA's Energy Program at ADVANCE Expert Workshop on “Innovation in Relation to Building Energy Demand in IAMs”

IIASA's Energy Program has key role in discussions among international integrated assessment modeling experts.

Keywan Riahi and Volker Krey take part in the expert workshop carried out within the framework of the European Commission FP7 Advanced Model Development and Validation for Improved Analysis of Costs and Impacts of Mitigation Policies (ADVANCE).

This workshop involves key members of the international integrated assessment modeling community. In addition to discussing cutting-edge topics relevant to the integrated assessment modeling community, this workshop also seeks to pinpoint feasible research and policy priorities for the near future.


ADVANCE is a 4-year research project that started in January 2013, through cooperation among fourteen research institutions from all over Europe with the aim to trigger the development of a new generation of Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs), that would aptly describe the environmental, social and economic factors and interactions that determine climate change. IIASA works closely with the Netherland’s Utrecht University and PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency as partners in ADVANCE.
