Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Ms. Benigna Boza-Kiss joined the Transition to New Technologies Program (TNT) in 2017, to work with low emission and low energy demand scenarios, including their policy relevance and sustainable development (SDG) implications. Her main research interest is in understanding the trends and dynamics of technology, behavior and policy developments in the area of sustainable development, climate change, SDGs, and related to their nexus with other fields. Furthermore, she is responsible for the maintenance and enhancement of the “Energy and Carbon Emissions Inventories Database” (ECDB) that can be used to show the trends and underlying factors of uncertainty in energy and emissions reporting.
Ms. Boza-Kiss holds an MSc in environmental science and policy from a joint program of the Central European University (CEU, Budapest, Hungary) and Manchester University. She also completed an MSc in Biology and a bachelor’s degree in Scientific English Translation at Eotvos Lorand University (Budapest, Hungary). Prior to joining IIASA, she worked at CEU as a researcher on energy end-use technologies, and on the policy-science interface developing evidence-based policy support tools. She also worked at the European Commission, Joint Research Center (JRC) and contributed to the development and assessment of the Energy Efficiency Directive, and at the GreenDependent Institute where her focus was on the research-citizen interface related to sustainable lifestyles. Currently, she holds a research position at CEU and is working toward her PhD on policy interaction.
