BC3 Seminars “Bio-economic modelling in European agroforestry systems”


Event Categories: ,

Sustainable agroforestry can support EU policy goals for a greener economy by improving the competitiveness of agriculture and forestry, the quality of the environment, rural life, and climate change resilience.

BC3 Seminars: Beyond Quantum Biomimetics


Event Categories: ,

Javier Martinez

I will divide the presentation in two main parts. The first one is an overview about my work during the PhD along the line of Quantum Biomimetics. This concept, englobes a set of quantum algorithms designed to emulate specific biological properties or processes at a quantum scale. Afterwards, I will cover the main ideas in the field of complex networks, and include a [...]

BC3-UPV/EHU Seminars: “Groundwater Management in a Food Security Context”


Event Categories: ,
Event Tags:

Prof. Jean-Christophe Pereau
University of Bordeaux

This article analyzes the sustainability of market-based instruments such as tradable permits for the management of a renewable aquifer used for irrigated agriculture. In our dynamic hydro-economic model, a water agency aims at satisfying a food security constraint within a tradable permit scheme in the presence of myopic heterogeneous agents.
We identify analytically the viability kernel that defines the [...]

BC3-UPV Seminars: “Building Organizational Capacity for Sustainable Innovation”


Event Categories: ,

Dr. Sanjay Sharma
Dean and Professor of Management, Grossman School of Business, University of Vermont, USA

An overview of the phenomenon of organizational sustainability, of major research streams in this domain, and a framework to guide capacity building for sustainable innovation in organizations.

BC3 Seminars: Societal and Energy Metabolism as a Tool for Transformation: Understanding the Challenges of Energy-Society Relations


Event Categories: ,

Alev Sorman
Visiting postdoctoral researcher at the Pufendorf Institute at Lund University

Levels of complexity achieved by societies today have only been possible because of the abundance and readily usable primary energy forms whose exploitation provides huge surpluses of energy flows. However, the bonanza of the past is over and we are facing a global crisis with many challenges to overcome. Socio-economic systems are ever [...]

BC3 Seminars: Conservation Legacies: Understanding the Social-Ecological Impacts of International Biodiversity Aid


Event Categories: ,

Daniel Charles Miller
Assistant Professor at Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences (NRES)

Financial support is critical to achieving global biodiversity conservation goals. However, information about the allocation and the effectiveness of biodiversity aid, the largest source of funding for international conservation, remains lacking. This seminar presents new research on the impacts of international aid for biodiversity conservation in tropical countries. It describes findings from [...]

BC3 Seminars: Species distribution modelling of freshwater organisms


Event Categories: ,

Dr. Sami Domisch
Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries, Berlin, Germany

Species occurrence information consists in general of heterogeneous data, ranging from point records that provide accurate information in geographic and environmental space, to coarse expert range maps accounting for dispersal barriers or historical biogeographic limits. Combining both data types in a species distribution model (SDM) framework using newly-developed (1 km) freshwater-specific environmental variables [...]

BC3 Seminars: “How decision analysis theory can be used for river management”


Event Categories: ,

Dr. Simone Langhans
Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries, Berlin, Germany

River assessment and management are challenges to scientists and practitioners alike. Rivers, being highly complex ecosystems, are difficult to characterize with adequate indicators and predicting outcomes of river management actions are, therefore, sophisticated and affected by large uncertainty. Moreover, many stakeholders with potentially diverging interests are involved or affected by river management decisions. [...]

BC3 Seminars: Catchment zoning to enhance co-benefits and minimise trade-offs between ecosystem services and biodiversity conservation


Event Categories: ,

Dr. Virgilio Hermoso and Dr. Simone Langhans.

Integrating ecosystem services (ES) in landscape planning can help identify conservation opportunities by fostering co-benefits between biodiversity conservation and maintenance of regulation and cultural ecosystem services. However, potential trade-offs that arise from accounting for provisioning ES incompatible with biodiversity conservation should be considered. These trade-offs have been, however, overlooked to date, especially in freshwater systems. I will demonstrate [...]

BC3 Seminars: Exploring option pricing via volatility asymmetry


Event Categories: ,
Event Tags:

Isabel Casas
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at BCAM - Basque Center for Applied Mathematics

This paper proposes to model the asymmetric response of the volatility to the sign of past returns (leverage effect) nonparametrically in the context of stochastic volatility models. The new stochastic volatility specifications are able to generate volatility clustering and allow for a flexible time-varying functional form of the volatility asymmetry. The objective [...]
