The EUCalc expert engagement workshop devoted to “Transboundary effects of EU decarbonization pathways” was held in Brussels, at the European Climate Foundation premises, on 22nd November 2018. 

Within the broader scope of the Calculator, the Transboundary module (WP7) aims at quantifying the transboundary effects on intra- and extra-EU trade flows of alternative EUCalc pathways by using a computable general equilibrium (CGE) modelling framework. The simulated transboundary effects will inform EUCalc users of likely future economic dependencies inside the EU as well as between the EU and the rest of the world due to the EU’s decarbonization efforts.

This workshop was an important milestone in the research and design of the Transboundary module, providing contributions from cross-section experts from research and international organizations, public and private sector (CEPII Paris, NIBIO, ECF, WTO, OECD, EBRD, EIB, World Bank, EBRD, European Commission). The experts’ inputs are being assessed and used for the improvement of the EUCalc tool. The project will continue to interact with the experts, those who attended the workshop as well as those who, although unable to attend the workshop, expressed their interest to be involved or have sent their inputs remotely.
