    New GCF study on climate change impacts on Pari island (Indonesia)

    (German version below) In a new study, scientists from the GCF examine the current and future effects of anthropogenic global warming on the Indonesian island of Pari. The focus is on sea level rise as this is responsible for much of the climate change impacts on low-lying coral reef islands as Pari. In particular, the […]

    New working paper: Klaus Hasselmann and Economics

    Klaus Hasselmann and Economics Klaus Hasselmann has earned the 2021 Nobel prize in physics for his breakthroughs in analysing the climate system as a complex physical system. Since decades, as a leading climate scientist he is aware of the need for creative cooperation between climate scientists and researchers from other fields, especially economics. To facilitate […]

    New GCF Working Paper (02/21): The Decision Theatre Triangle for societal challenges

    The Decision Theatre Triangle for societal challenges To support discussions about the challenge of a sustainable mobility transition between researchers and stakeholders, such as practice experts, decision makers, and citizens, we have developed and tested an agent-based model and a mobile Decision Theatre set-up. Due to the combination of three elements: a) mathematical modelling and […]

    New working paper: The European Green Deal, More than climate neutrality

    The European Green Deal – More than climate neutrality The European Green Deal aims at climate neutrality of Europe by 2050, implying a significant acceleration of emission reductions. To gain the necessary support, at the same time it needs to reduce regional and social inequalities in Europe. We propose objectives in terms of jobs, growth, […]

    New GCF Working Paper (01/20): ABOUT THE EUROPEAN GREEN DEAL

    Acess the full Working Paper on the European Green Deal here With the personnel change at the top of both the European Commission and the European Central Bank, a Green Deal for Europe has been put on the agenda. To be politically feasible and socially acceptable, the European Green Deal needs to reduce not only […]

    GCF Working Paper 03/2018: Distributed Agent Graph

    [by S. Fuerst, A. Geiges] || In the Global System Science (GSS) field simulations of Agent Based Models (ABM) can be challenging regarding the needed computer resources, so that it’s necessary to run the simulation on computer clusters. The existing HPC ready ABM frameworks does not fit well to the structure of GSS models. This […]

    GCF Working Paper 02/2018: Model-Stakeholder-Interactions for a Sustainable Mobility Transition

    [by J. Mielke, A. Geiges] || The complexity of sustainability transitions calls for transdisciplinary dialogue processes among dierent stakeholder groups. When policy options are discussed with decision-makers, scientists often support them with the help of quantitative outputs provided by simulation models. With the increasing complexity of models in times of big data and high-performance computing, […]

    Green Growth Mechanics: The Building Blocks

    [by G. Steudle, S. Wolf, J. Mielke,  C. Jaeger] || Green growth holds the promise that solving environmental problems can at the same time create economic benefits. Yet, until now there is little analytically sound work on the possibility of such a dynamics. In this paper, we investigate conditions under which a transition from brown […]

    GCF Working Paper 3/2017: Electric Mobility in view of Green Growth

    [by S. Wolf, S. Fuerst, A. Geiges, G. Steudle, J. von Postel, C. Jaeger] || GCF presented work on the diffusion of electric mobility in a green growth context at the Electric Vehicle Symposium in Stuttgart in October 2017. This working paper is a follow-up version of the paper prepared for this conference. The paper […]
