Modelling opportunities and limits for restructuring europe towards sustainability

Objective

The project framework of MOSUS is set by key agreements for the future sustainable development of the European Union. MOSUS will apply an integrated ecological-economic simulation model to quantify the interrelations between socio-economic driving forces and the state of the environment. The analysis uses a multi-country, multi-sectoral macroeconomic framework, including trade flows within Europe and between Europe and all otherworld regions. The model will be the first such tool to directly integrate comprehensive biophysical data (materials, energy, land use data, and greenhouse gas emissions) in simulations to the year 2020, putting them in relation to indicators of social and economic development. MOSUS will formulate EU development scenarios and evaluate the economic and social impacts of key environmental policy measures and will present quantified policy recommendations for responding to environmental challenges and changes.
