European Trans-disciplinary Assessment of Climate Engineering (EU TRACE)
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).
Nem Vaughan is involved in two components of the project, the first component provides an overview of climate engineering including classifications and illustrative case studies, whilst the second regards the interaction with EU publics and stakeholders. In both of these, Nem is working with other UK and European institutions.
Nick Pidgeon, Cardiff and Piers Forster, Leeds are part of the EU TRACE network of partners. The involvement of IAGP in the EU TRACE programme is important to both projects. EU TRACE has received almost EUR 1 million under the Environment Theme of the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). It will run for 28 months from June 2012 to September 2014.
