This workshop focused on the role of carbon and energy taxes in climate change mitigation. It was organised in three sessions on the general framework, empirical analysis for the EU, and the assessment of obstacles to policy progress. The event was designed as a scoping meeting for future research activities of FSR Climate in this area and also to explore collaborative work with other academic and non-academic institutions operating in the field.
