Resource Markets and Policies

A Joint Research Program on Corporate Strategies, Market Developments, and other Trends Regarding Strategic Natural Resource



The research program „Resource Marktes and Policies“ analyzes corporate strategies, market developments, and other trends regarding strategic natural resources. Our initial focus is on energy resources (oil, natural gas, coal) whereas we shall also consider similar resource and commodity markets such as aluminium, copper, iron ore, uranium, and others. Our approach is interdisciplinary, with a focus on business and economics, technology, and institutional aspects.

Research partners:

  • Stanford University PESD (Program on Energy and Sustainable Development) - Global Coal
  • THINK provides advice to the European Commission on SET Plan (7th EU Framework Program)
  • EMF 28 „Europe 2050: „The Effects of Technology Choices on EU Climate Policy“

Previous projects:

  • Coordinating Energy Security in Supply Activities (CESSA) (Coordinating Energy Security in Supply Activities, 6th EU Framework Program)
  • Security of Energy Considering its Uncertainty, Risk, and Economic Implications (SECURE)
  • Coordinating Energy Security in Supply Activities (CESSA) (Coordinating Energy Security in Supply Activities, 6th EU Framework Program)

Please feel free to contact us if you have suggestions, criticism or want to explore ways of cooperating with the program.
