An interdisciplinary team spanning across 7 European countries
Top European climate and policy research centers
CAPABLE is financed under the Horizon Europe programme
The project started on Jan 1 2023 and will last until Dec 31 2025
What we aim to
Addressing issues of deep uncertainty, social heterogeneity of actors, behavioural responses and biases, and multi-objective welfare measurement.
Develop new methods for socio-economic decision-making
Particularly on determinants of public support and opposition driving the political feasibility of climate policies.
Enhance the empirical knowledge of public
perceptions of climate policies
With a focus on policy implementation and sequencing, and on policies of the Fit for 55 package – with the best available scientific evidence.
Synthesize the rich
literature on climate policy impact evaluation
From the European and national levels to regional city levels, as well as recent citizen engagement initiatives
Analyse the role of
policymakers at various levels
To be disseminated, exploited, and facilitated by the development of an online policy evaluation tool.
Design actionable and effective climate

Each country responds in a different way to face the net‐zero pathway. So what is really worth? Which policy works better?
Carbon taxes and environmental taxes in general, may not be feasible right now but may become viable in the future with proper revenue recycling towards clean infrastructure, investment or social redistribution
The governments' responses to the energy crisis was quick and robust but untargeted, and overall the crisis had not derailed much of the climate change mitigation efforts.
From social psychology and political science to economics and environmental sciences - each researcher brings a fundamental contribution to the mix.
