|ICCS/E3MLab||The Energy-Economy-Environment Modelling Laboratory E3MLab operating within the Institute of Communication and Computer Systems of the National Technical University of Athens (ICCS/NTUA), Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is a laboratory that specializes in the construction and use of large scale computerised models covering the areas of Energy, the Economy and the Environment. Such models are used to make projections and analyse complex issues requiring system-wide consideration. Special emphasis is given to policy analysis and support.|
|IIASA||Founded in 1972, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) conducts policy-oriented research into problems of a global nature that are too large or too complex to be solved by a single country or academic discipline.IIASA is sponsored by its National Member Organizations in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas. Its research is independent and completely unconstrained by political or national self-interest.|
|JRC||Joint Research Centre - JRC - European Commission. As the Commission's in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre's mission is to provide EU policies with independent, evidence-based scientific and technical support throughout the whole policy cycle. Working in close cooperation with policy Directorates-General, the JRC addresses key societal challenges while stimulating innovation through developing new methods, tools and standards, and sharing its know-how with the Member States, the scientific community and international partners.|
