Modelling and Analysis of Low Carbon transitiONs Modelado y análisis de transiciones bajas en carbono  

The Modelling and Analysis of Low Carbon transitiONs (MALCON) project is the continuation of the research carried out by the principal investigator and his team on environmental-economic modelling, low carbon transitions and international trade. This research activity is organised in two different research lines: RL1. Analysis of global supply chains, and RL2. Modelling the transition towards a low carbon economy. The MALCON project is framed in the Societal Challenges 3 (Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy) and 5 Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials of the H2020 programme (objectives 13th and 15th of the Spanish Strategy of Science, Technology and Innovation).

The project pays especial attention to the social and economic dimensions of these challenges and, in particular, to implications in terms of income distribution and employment. The MALCON project is also connected to the Societal Challenge 2 of the H2020: Food Security, Sustainable Agriculture and Forestry, Marine, Maritime and Inland Water Research and the Bioeconomy (objective 12th of the Spanish Strategy of Science, Technology and Innovation). The ambition of MALCON is to develop methods and modelling tools to understand the social, economic and environmental implications of low-carbon transitions at different scale. To that end the project has five specific objectives that will guide the activity of the group: SO1: Analyse the income, employment and CO2 emissions implications of global supply-chains; SO2: Analyse the global supply chain of forest and agricultural products, in relation to land use, food security and climate change; SO3: Develop a dynamic econometric model for Spain; SO4: Analyse the economic implications of the transition towards a low-carbon economy in Spain; SO5: Analysis of low carbon transitions using Integrated Assessment Models.
