RECEIPT workshop in Warsaw

CASE – Center for Social and Economic Research is organizing a workshop on the economic impacts of extreme weather conditions on the manufacturing sector in Europe and the world. The meeting will be held on March 19, 2020 in Warsaw. An official agenda will be presented in the second half of February.

The workshop will provide an excellent opportunity for invited managers, experts and representatives of companies from different European countries to exchange experiences and best practices, as well as to establish new professional and business contacts. Thanks to this event participants will gain inside knowledge that will help their business be better prepared for climate changes, and their company will have a real chance to influence policymakers - the results of the project will be presented at the EU level.

In an interconnected world, Europe’s economy is increasingly affected by climate change impacts (hurricanes, droughts, floods) that occur beyond its border. The meeting will address the following issues, among others: what are the socio-economic implications of climate change for European companies, what are the upcoming trends in manufacturing sector, how the value chain would have to be modified in order to keep the manufacturing sector competitive at regional and international levels.

The workshop is a part of the RECEIPT - REmote Climate Effects and their Impact on European sustainability, Policy and Trade European Horizon 2020 funded research project, which aims to create a plausible picture of Europe’s vulnerability to remote climate risks with potential consequences for key European socio-economic sectors.
