Center for Socio-Economic Research on Environmental Policy Impact Assessment (SEEPIA) is a project supported by the Environment for Life Programme (TA ČR). Its aim is to create an interdisciplinary research centre that will be involved in long-term socio-economic research in the field of environment. The Centre will develop methods for policy impact assessment, foresight and attitudinal and behavioural research. It will then provide expert support to public authorities in policy and strategy development based on the research activities carried out.
The research consortium includes 12 research organisations, universities and businesses, led by the UK Centre for Environmental Issues. The project runs from 2021-2026.
ISS CAS also participates in the project Centre for Socio-Economic Research on the Impact of Environmental Policies, whose principal investigator is Mgr. et Mgr. Mgr. Paulína Tabery. The Centre started its activities in the middle of 2021. Following this, research priorities were set within the relevant WP and meetings were held over the questionnaire to specify which policies would be the focus of data collection in 2022.
