On June 12-14, Prof. Dr. Astrid Dannenberg and Marcel Lumkowsky from our chair visited the Kick-off Conference of the Dialogue on the Economics of Climate Change in Berlin to represent COMPLIANCE, one of our current research projects. The Kick-off Conference united 29 projects of the funding line Economics of Climate Change (2. phase) by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and gave opportunity to get to know each other, exchange ideas, define network activities and discuss the challenges of climate economics research. Being involved in 7 of the 29 projects, the University of Kassel is strongly represented in this funding line.
