Combining Policy Instruments to Achieve Europe's 2050 Climate Targets (CECILIA2050)

September 2012 to August 2015
A new Ecologic Institute led research project on EU climate policy, called "CECILIA2050" has taken off with an internal kick-off meeting, the website launch and a first public event at the climate summit in Doha, Qatar. The three-year project is to draft recommendations for a suitable mix of instruments to help the EU achieve the 2050 emission reduction targets set by Heads of State and Government in 2009.Read more

DYNAmic policy MIXes for Absolute Decoupling of Environmental Impact of EU Resource Use from Economic Growth (DYNAMIX)

September 2012 to March 2016
At the end of March 2016, the European Union FP7 research project DYNAMIX came to a close. DYNAMIX aimed at proposing policy mixes that can foster shifting the EU onto a pathway where its resource use and the associated environmental impacts decline in absolute terms while the economy continues to thrive. This FP7 research project, led by Ecologic Institute, combined quantitative modeling and qualitative assessments to provide EU and national policy-makers with tangible support towards implementing resource efficiency policies.

Welfare, Wealth and Work for Europe (wwwforEurope)

January 2012 to March 2016

The project "Welfare, Wealth and Work for Europe – WWWforEurope" seeks to develop a conceptual framework for a socio-ecological transition in the context of the Europe 2020 strategy. The project brings together a large interdisciplinary consortium of 33 research institutions in 12 European countries. Leading a workpackage in this project, the Ecologic Institute conducts a case study in Northern Bavaria in order to investigate the role of energy cooperatives in the German energy transition and in which way their organisational structure could be beneficial for participation, the motivationRead more

Policy-oriented Marine Environmental Research in the Southern European Seas (PERSEUS)

January 2012 to December 2015
The FP7 research project Policy-Oriented Marine Environmental Research in the Southern European Seas (PERSEUS) supports the implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) in the Mediterranean and Black Seas. PERSEUS strengthens the application of the ecosystem-based management approach, which considers both ecological and anthropogenic dynamics within an ecosystem.Read more

Restoring River for Effective Catchment Management (REFORM)

November 2011 to November 2015

Europe is characterized by a dense network of rivers that provide essential ecosystem services. Over time, use of rivers by humans has led to severe degradation of water quality and ecosystem functions. REFORM will improve existing tools and develop new ones to increase the success and cost-effectiveness of restoration measures to monitor the biological responses to hydromorphological changes.

Main objectives

The overall aims of REFORM are (1) to provide a framework for improving the success of hydromorphological restoration measures and (2) toRead more

Sustainable and Climate Friendly Soil Management (SmartSOIL)

November 2011 to October 2015

Farming practices exert an important influence over soil functions, soil organic matter and carbon stocks, which in turn are essential to regulating greenhouse gas emissions in agriculture. SmartSOIL is an EU-funded project which will develop an innovative approach assessing the impact of farm management on soil organic carbon stocks, crop productivity and other ecosystem services. SmartSOIL will develop a decision support tool to enable farmers, advisors and policy makers to discuss and select the most appropriate and cost-effective practices for different farming systems, soils and climates - in a smart way.

Ecological and Human Health Risk Assessments of Drugs in the Environment (PHARMAS)

January 2011 to December 2013

Over the last couple of decades, pharmaceutical products have been repeatedly found in environmental waters and even in drinking water. Although the effects of pharmaceuticals when ingested as medicine are well studied, the continuous ingestion of trace concentrations in water by the general population, or the effects for wildlife (e.g. fish), are only recently the subject of scientific research. This project addresses some of the knowledge gaps for this subject, targeting two specific compound groups: antibiotics, and anti-cancer (cytostatic) drugs.

Dissemination and Uptake of FP Water Research Results (WaterDiss2.0)

January 2011 to December 2013

The general objective of the project is to speed up the transfer of research outputs (FP6&7) relevant to the implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) to water management institutions (a basin authority or a city). The dissemination and uptake of the results of past research projects will be analysed and strategies for improving the uptake will be developed. Identified dissemination activities (brokerage events, training, e-seminar) will be carried out in cooperation with the project consortiums throughout Europe.

Evaluating Economic Policy Instruments for Sustainable Water Management in Europe (EPI-Water)

January 2011 to December 2013

The EPI-Water project aims to assess the effectiveness and the efficiency of Economic Policy Instruments in achieving water policy goals and to identify the preconditions under which they complement or perform better than alternative (e.g., regulatory or voluntary) policy instruments. First project results are available for download.

Individuals in Context: Supportive Environments for Sustainable Living (InContext)

October 2010 to October 2013
The three-year research project "InContext" identified framework conditions enabling societal transition towards an ecologically sound, economically successful and culturally diverse future. Action at local and individual levels is vital to bring the concept of sustainable development to life. However, policies aimed at initiating such local and individual transitions towards sustainability can often not achieve the desired change. Thus, the EU research project InContext has set out to investigate the conditions for creating sustainability transitions at the local and individual levels. Read more
