1. DISSETTLE EC Marie Curie Initial Training Network (FP7)

show details...
DISSETTLE - Dispute Settlement in Trade: Training in Law and Economics, European Commission, Marie Curie Initial Training Network, FP7
Duration: May 2011 - April 2015
Project coordinator: Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Switzerland
Participating Researchers: Jan Jakub Michałek,
Andrzej Cie¶lik,
Jan Hagemejer,
Ryszard Kokoszczyński, rkokoszczynski@wne.uw,
Armando Rungi,
Project objectives: DISSETTLE is to train young researchers in economic and legal issues to work together on dispute settlement mechanism in international trade agreement regimes. The five European Institutions, that have pioneered interdisciplinary work on economics and law, are to carry out training and research on international trade and investment agreements. The training opportunities are offered for PhD students and other young researchers to be registered by the network at one of the participating universities. The project provides a series of dedicated training courses, workshops, conferences and summer schools and offers internships opportunity with private sector and non-profit DISSETTLE associated partners.

2. CECILIA2050 EC Seventh Framework Programme (FP7)

show details...
CECILIA2050 - Choosing Efficient Combinations of Policy Instruments for Low-carbon development and Innovation to Achieve Europe's 2050 climate targets
Duration: September 2012 - August 2015
Project coordinator: Ecologic Institute, Germany
Participating Researchers: Mikołaj Czajkowski,
Tomasz Żylicz,
Project objectives: Europe needs to transform itself to a low-carbon economy by mid-century.
The existing instrument mix needs to be scaled up drastically to initiate the changes needed across the economy. As the scale and scope of instruments increases, their interaction becomes more important, as do constraints on the political, legal and administrative feasibility.
To evaluate their efficiency and effectiveness, instruments cannot be viewed in isolation; understanding and managing their interaction becomes key.

The CECILIA2050 project analyses the performance of existing climate policy instruments and their interaction, and maps pathways for the evolution of the instrument mix in Europe. It describes ways to improve the economic efficiency and environmental effectiveness of the instrument mix, and to address constraints that limit their performance or feasibility. These include public acceptance, availability of finance and the physical infrastructure, but also the administrative and legal framework.

The first, backward-looking part of the project takes stock of the existing instrument mix in the EU and its Member States, and assesses their coherence and past performance. It describes which factors determine their efficiency and effectiveness, and measures their effects on equity, innovation and competitiveness. The second, forward-looking part maps pathways towards a more ambitious policy mix for 2030 and 2050, starting from the current EU climate policy. With economic instruments at the heart of the mix, it describes and models how the instrumentation could evolve, based on scenarios of the magnitude of change required for the low-carbon transformation. To this end, it combines the state of the art modelling tools with qualitative and participatory methods. To complement the EU-level analysis, the effects of EU climate policies are quantified at the global level.

3. COMPETE EC Seventh Framework Programme (FP7)

show details...
COMPETE - International comparisons of product supply chains in the agro-food sectors: determinants of their competitiveness and performance on EU and international markets
Duration: October 2012 - September 2015
Project coordinator: Leibnitz Institut für Agrarentwickung in Mittel- und Osteuropa, Germany
Participating Researchers: Jan Fałkowski,
Dominika Milczarek-Andrzejewska,
Jerzy Wilkin,
Project objectives: The COMPETE project is to gain a comprehensive view of the different elements that contribute to the competitiveness of the European agri-food sector. The purpose is to provide better targeted and evidence-based policies at the EU as well as at the national level, and to promote the Knowledge Based Bio-Economy in Europe.

4. GENDEQU NCBiR Polish-Norwegian Research Programme

show details...
GENDEQU - Gender equality at the university
Duration: November 2013 - September 2016
Project coordinator: Faculty of Economic Sciences, University of Warsaw
Participating Researchers: Michał Krawczyk,
Anna Bartczak,
Magdalena Smyk,
Project objectives: This project is aimed at investigating various forms of gender discrimination in academia. Studies show that despite substantial progress, cultural, economic, social and political barriers to women's progress in science still persist. In this interdisciplinary project we will apply the gender mainstreaming perspective to several important aspects of this issue. GENDEQU project has received funding from the Polish-Norwegian Research Programme operated by the National Centre for Research and Development under the Norwegian Financial Mechanism 2009-2014

5. INNOGEND NCBiR Polish-Norwegian Research Programme

show details...
INNOGEND - 'Innovative Gender' as a New Source of Progress
Duration: September 2013 - August 2016
Website: -
Project coordinator: Faculty of Management and Social Communication
Jagiellonian University
Participating Researchers: Barbara Liberda,
Magdalena Smyk,
Project objectives: The project main focus is the concept of 'innovative gender' that combines two research problems - positions of women and men in economy and society with a process of innovativeness and creativity. Such an approach requires integrating the analysis of new sources of progress and competitive advantages (social sciences) and mainstreaming gender equality. INNOGEND project has received funding from the Polish-Norwegian Research Programme operated by the National Centre for Research and Development under the Norwegian Financial Mechanism 2009-2014

6. TRANPAREA NCBiR Polish-Norwegian Research Programme

show details...
TRANPAREA - Value of Transboundary Nature Protected Areas Situated near the EU Outer Borders
Duration: September 2013 - August 2015
Project coordinator: Faculty of Economic Sciences, University of Warsaw
Participating Researchers: Tomasz Żylicz,
Mikołaj Czajkowski,
Marek Giergiczny,
Sviataslau Valasiuk
Project objectives: The project is aimed at applied economic analyses of the phenomenon of transboundary nature protected areas (TNPAs) located at the outer borders of EU, where ecosystems and biodiversity have been preserved in near intact state and which provide various ecosystem services. TRANPAREA project has received funding from the Polish-Norwegian Research Programme operated by the National Centre for Research and Development under the Norwegian Financial Mechanism 2009-2014

7. NEWFOREX EC Seventh Framework Programme (FP7)

show details...
NEWFOREX - New ways to value and market forest externalities, European Commission FP7.
Duration: December 2009 - May 2014
Project coordinator: University of Copenhagen, Denmark
Participating Researchers: Anna Bartczak,
Tomasz Żylicz,
Jerzy ¦leszyński,
Mikołaj Czajkowski,
Marek Giergiczny,
Project objectives: NEWFOREX is to provide new methods for valuing non-marketed forest goods and services, so called externalities. The project is also to develop a methodology for assessing the cost of provision of externalities and to assess several market-based methods for enhancing the provision of forest externalities. To achieve the project objectives five European case studies that represent important variation in forest types and socio-economic context in Europe will be undertaken. In addition, a comparative case study in a developing country will be performed. Case studies will focus on key forest externalities: carbon sequestration, biodiversity protection, watershed services and recreation. Addressing the demand and supply side simultaneously is a unique and innovative stroke. New and improved methods, comparative analyses and guidelines will result and will be widely distributed amongst policy makers, forest managers and forest owners to be implemented.
