Climate Change and Innovation Research

The focus of the group is on reconciling climate change and innovation-oriented research with predictions and views of the future foresight studies. The group examines impacts of weather and climate change for mitigation and adaptation policies and efforts, with emphasis on the economic dimension.

The main focus areas of our group are:

  • Researching the global crossborder effects of extreme weather and economic dimension, e.g. emission trading, in Finland

  • Developing and assessing efficiency, criteria, concepts and methods of delivering climate change information

  • Developing new climate change service, which includes novel impact forecasts and scenarios in different time scales, also covering economic impacts

  • Developing climate change training and testing novel pilot products and services together with the users
