You are hereIAGP Research
IAGP research is centred around five inter-linked programmes:
- Framework development
- Engaging with publics and stakeholders – informing public policy
- Using climate modelling to evaluate geoengineering technologies
- Earth climate controllability
IAGP is engaged in a number of formal and informal research collaborations with UK and international organisations and research groups.
Nem Vaughan, UEA and Jim Haywood, Exeter are part of a new European project (EU TRACE) on assessing climate engineering, another name for geoengineering. This new project seeks to draw together European expertise on the physical and social science issues surrounding geoengineering and include dialogue with European publics and stakeholders. The EU TRACE project is led by the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Science (IASS) in Potsdam, Germany, and brings together climate engineering experts from 14 world-class institutions across 6 European countries (Austria, England, France, Germany, Norway and Scotland).
- Risk Perception & Social Response Research Group at the Centre for Nanotechnologies (CNS) in Society, University of Santa-Barbara, California
Nick Pidgeon from Cardiff is Co-Leader of this international research collaboration. As a major centre for the study of emerging technologies, CNS at Santa Barbara provides an important link between IAGP and risk perception researchers studying nanotechnologies. A collaborative international survey of public attitudes to nano and geo is planned for 2013, using funding from CNS.
