Abstract DG Environment Workshop on Requirements for Policy Modelling

DG Environment run a scoping study to define needs for improvements in environmental modelling. The purpose of this study is “to scope out the potential for a modelling exercise of EU environment policy, in order to improve our policy-making and maximise results on the ground for citizens and the environment. The modelling exercise should provide an overview of the models we have at the moment, so that we can identify gaps and improve our policies accordingly. With this in mind, the modelling exercise could feed into, inter alia, the evaluation of the 7th EAP, which should be completed by 2019. What questions could be asked that models could answer, and what would be the modelling implications? The contractor should set out the possible modelling options, with some pros and cons related to them, to allow for an informed discussion on whether and how to proceed (which type of models, timelines...).” This workshop aimed to discuss the preliminary results with DG Environment officials and modelling experts who have a broad view of modelling in relevant fields. We wish to invite you as an expert in models for ecological systems to help us identify directions for modelling development. The workshop will be held at DG Environment, in Brussels.
