“We are very proud to support the research efforts of the Chair” said Nicolas Rochon, Founder and Managing Partner of RGREEN INVEST. “Training junior researchers dedicated to climate economics is essential to build a performing and environmentally-friendly economic system. Their publications will help inform decision-makers of the urgency to adapt our economies to climate change” he continued.
A high-level research platform, open to the economic and political world
Launched in 2010, and founded by the Université Paris-Dauphine, the Climate Economics Chair is under the aegis of the Fondation Institut Europlace de Finance. Thanks to its academic recognition, the Chair provides a high-level debate platform between the academic and professional world.
Its main purpose is to train PhD students and interns from various backgrounds in climate economics. Moreover, it also intends to bridge the academic and public/private decision-making worlds by fueling the public debate with its scientific research, through the organization of seminars open to professionals and researchers.
The Chair’s research activities are organized into three different clusters that bring together a team of 20 permanent researchers and 15 associates, dedicated to specific themes and sectors, such as low-carbon innovation, agriculture, forests, and the energy transition.
