Centre for Geography, Resources, Environment, Energy and Networks
GREEN, the Centre for Research in Geography, Resources, Environment, Energy and Networks, was established as a result of the merger between CERTeT and IEFE. GREEN aims to conduct and promote research projects at the intersection of the spatial of socio-economic phenomena and of climate change, transportation, environmental policy and energy markets.
The main areas of research are:
- Economic geography and local governance
Spatial analysis of socio-economic phenomena (e.g. economic activities, local development, housing) and local public policy
- Environment and climate change
Environmental analysis and policy at global, local and firm level
- Networks and public utilities
Economic analysis of specific sectors such as transportation, energy markets, telecoms, water and sanitation, solid waste management, geopolitics of international networks
- Circular Green and ESG Finance
Analysis of the relation between Sustainability and Finance, currently leveraged around the grounds of the relationship between Circular Economy (CE) and Finance – Circular Finance –, Green Finance and Transition/ESG Finance.
The research approach is highly multidisciplinary and oriented towards addressing policy-relevant issues at local and global scale.
