BC3 seminar: Green Public Procurement and Organic Food Policy in Sweden


Event Categories: ,

Increasing organic food production has earned increasing attention during the last decades by EU and Swedish policy makers alike. Green Public Procurement is seen as a useful tool to shape consumption and production trends, increase demand for organic food and thereby alter the market structure in favor of organic food. However, the impact of a green procurement policy is an empirical question and depends [...]

BC3 Seminar: Cambio climático e impacto antrópico en el registro arqueo-paleontológico del Cuaternario


Event Categories: ,

Los depósitos cuaternarios, tanto de origen humano (yacimientos arqueológicos), como no vinculados a su actividad (turberas, humedales, lagos, morrenas glaciares, acumulaciones loéssicas, etc.) representan un gigantesco archivo en el que han quedado registrados, entre otros, los sucesivos cambios ambientales producidos durante su relleno sedimentario. El devenir metodológico de la Arqueología ha propiciado el desarrollo de un completo protocolo de investigación de estos depósitos, comprendiendo [...]

BC3 Seminar: Demand flexibility in the Swedish electricity market


Event Categories: ,

Demand flexibility has recently seen large interest from Swedish policy makers, and dynamic pricing is thought to be a useful tool for improving efficiency, reducing emissions and enable the integration of more renewable generation. However, so far, few households have adopted such pricing schemes. In this seminar, I will present some previous, ongoing and future research by me and my colleagues that relates to [...]

BC3 Seminar: What is the future of the Paramos in a warmer world?



Climate models predict that the temperature will increase between 2 and 5 ° C over the next 50 years impacting ecosystems, biodiversity, and carbon dynamics. Of particular interest are high mountain ecosystems such as Páramo that stores large amounts of organic carbon in their soil and are home to many endemic species vulnerable to climate change. An increase in temperature in this ecosystem could [...]

BC3 Seminar: “Plural values of nature – the means determine the end”


Event Categories: ,

Research on nature-society interactions if a very broad field involving many specialisms and disciplinary schools. From a values perspective, conflicts occur when values of different groups are traded off: economic development versus indigenous culture, profit farming versus landscape heritage.

BC3 Seminar: ” Credible, effective and publicly acceptable policies to decarbonise the European Union”


Event Categories: ,

This seminar investigates the extent to which current policies and institutional arrangements are fit for purpose for the new decarbonisation phase into which the EU is entering. It summarises the main findings from the Statkraft research programme, ‘“Fit-for-purpose” energy and climate change mitigation policies for the European Union’, completed in December 2017.

BC3 Seminar: “Linking bottom-up and top-down energy modeling in the framework of EIO analysis“


Event Categories: ,

We use the model framework developed by Guevara and others to set up an EIO model where the energy system is in great part driven by the energy services (or useful energy).

BC3 Seminar: “Key plant aboveground and belowground mutualisms and ecosystem dynamics.”


Event Categories: ,

Seed dispersal and mycorrhizal associations are key mutualisms for the functioning and regeneration of plant communities; however, these processes have seldom been explored together.

April 2018

BC3 Seminar: “Exploring national survey data to quantify household dependence on ecosystem services”


Event Categories: ,

Although ecosystem services are inherently at the interface of society and nature, most of the indicators used to measure them are still predominantly either biophysical or social.
