The key research questions include but are not limited to

  • Expanding the macroeconomic modelling of the transition to account explicitly for the financial sector and the role of central banks
  • Developing climate risk frameworks including two-way feedbacks between climate and the financial sector
  • Developing climate risk frameworks accounting explicitly for dynamic balance sheets and strategic behavior of financial institutions, as well as for adaptation strategies of non-financial agents
  • Accounting for scenario uncertainty and uncertainty of scenario perception and dynamic information discovery by the economic agents
  • Assessing the risks of short- and medium-term financial market dynamics related to the transition (volatility, fire sales, default contagion) on financial stability
  • Developing asset pricing methodologies accounting for physical and transition climate risk
