Event formats

The Dialogue on the Economics of Climate Change organizes a wide variety of events bringing together representatives from industry, non-governmental and governmental organizations, civil society, the media, and academia.

Recent research results are presented and discussed. The main aim is to enable a dialogue between climate scientists and stakeholders on topics that are relevant to climate decision-making processes and policies.

Forum Climate Economics

The heart of the Dialogue on the Economics of Climate Change is the event series Forum Climate Economics – a platform that gives scientists and practitioners the opportunity to exchange views on current topics in the debate on climate and energy policies – with two events per year.

During the first phase of the BMBF funding measure Economics of Climate Change five Fora have already taken place. The 6th Forum Climate Economics will take place on November 18, 2019 in Berlin.

Thematic workshops

Various scientific workshops will be organized within the themes of the BMBF funding measure Economics of Climate Change II to give researchers the opportunity to exchange views on methodological and content-related issues. In order to connect the results of individual projects and work towards solutions, overarching topics will be identified.

The aim of the workshops is to develop common positions and contributions to current topics in energy and climate policy debates.

PhD workshops

Starting in 2020, workshops will be offered specifically for the promotion of early career scientists, for example to impart climate-economic research methods.

In addition, young researchers will be prepared for the challenges of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research and be counselled on different career development pathways.

Other event formats

The Dialogue on the Economics of Climate Change will take part in various national and international events.

For example, on June 24, 2020, we will organize the EAERE Pre-Conference Event "Beyond Coal, Gas and Oil - Designing a Socially Just and Economically Viable Phase-Out".
Furthermore, a parliamentary breakfast, ZEW Lunch Debates in Brussels, and COP Side Events are planned.
