FSR Climate is a research group within the European University Institute (EUI)’s Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS). Established in 2010, FSR Climate aims to provide a reliable source for information, analysis and evaluation of EU climate policies ex-post and a forum for discussion of research carried out in this area. Within the EUI we work in collaboration with the energy and regulatory policy research groups of the Florence School of Regulation.
Our Research focuses on the environmental and economic evaluation of climate policies implemented in the EU at different jurisdictional levels. Our main research interests are: the EU Emissions Trading System, the renewable energy promotion, the distributional impact of climate policy, the energy efficiency policies and environmental and the energy taxation. All our research is freely available in our working paper series.
FSR Climate organises several Events (workshops, conferences, online events and others) involving researchers and the policy and business communities for the purposes of developing, presenting, and discussing research that evaluates EU climate policies.
