In this episode of FSR Insights, our hosts Leonardo Meeus and Lucila de Almeida will be joined by Anne Van Valkengoed from the University of Groningen to discuss her research on climate policy and the psychology of climate change adaptation.

Assessing human behavioural change is crucial for shaping the right policy framework for climate adaptation. In light of this, policies and regulations should also consider psychological sciences to better address possible obstacles to act against climate change. This event presents a valuable opportunity to delve into the subject.

As part of the Horizon-funded project, CAPABLE, the Climate research team at the FSR is currently contributing to capture climate policy’s multidimensional outcomes and implications based on the most up-to-date knowledge and methods on economics, sociology, political sciences, and psychology.

More on the CAPABLE project

CAPABLE is a Horizon Europe project led by CMCC that will provide recommendations for designing socially and economically acceptable climate policy measures for 2030 and beyond. CAPABLE will draw on economics, sociology, political sciences, and psychology to capture climate policy’s multidimensional outcomes and implications. It started in January 2023 and will run until December 2025.


The FSR Insights series features world-class academics from the energy field, as well as the FSR research team members in the role of discussants, to investigate timely energy topics and future scenarios.
