Decarbonising emissions-heavy industrial sectors is key to delivering on the Paris Agreement. In Austria, the iron and steel sector holds a large share of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions and is in need of introduction of new technologies, orienting on green hydrogen and renewable energies.

Joint Annual Meeting of the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) and the European Association for the Study of Science and Technology (EASST), August 21, 2020, Prague, the Czech Republic.
The number of Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) and mitigation scenarios produced by IAMs have been steadily growing since the first IPCC assessment report, and scenarios have become increasingly influential in climate policy debates. Lots of scenarios are now produced that are compatible with the policy targets of the Paris Agreement. IAMs – developed at universities, research institutes, and government agencies – contribute with scenarios to the IPCC reports and the academic literature.

Achieving sustainable development in Eastern Africa: a portfolio-based integrated assessment modelling analysis among different Shared Socioeconomic Pathways. Twelfth Annual Meeting of the Integrated Assessment Modeling Consortium, December 2, 2019, Tsukuba, Japan.
We introduce a two-level integration of integrated assessment modelling and portfolio analysis, in order to simulate technological subsidisation and climate policies with implications for multiple Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), across different socioeconomic trajectories and considering different levels of uncertainties.
