With the support of the International Visegrad Fund, GARI launched a new project in May 2022. The Green Energy Transition project is an indirect continuation of the V4-CARE-ARSEC (2018 - 2021) project, which was designed as a regional step to establishing an interdisciplinary research centre that aims to alter the ways we understand regional and global processes and globalization.
To supply AI-assisted, Big-Data based analysis, projections, and scenarios of the impact of the Green Transition in the (post)COVID world
To transform this capacity into a continuous system of regular semi- automatic updates across the spectrum of the outputs
To distribute the findings among policy makers, policy analysts, and the business community
To engage with selected universities as a step towards a more ambitious goal of establishing a V4-wide university courses on big data, AI-assisted analytics in political and social research.
The added value and innovative element lies in organic and deep marrying of the highly developed computer-based data-science techniques with the policy-related research and analytics. Complexity: each country, region, or industry will be analyzed with wealth of data ranging from 6000 – 16000 factors (including, but by far not limited to: economy, education, employment, health, energy, demography, finances, inflation and prices, social services, construction, transport, supply chains, environment, trade, investment, industry, banking, services, politics, security, inequality and many more). Depth: the geographical level will cover from a global, through European, regional, country- level to district-level perspective Speed: thanks to the digital data environment, the analytical process will be very swift which is crucial for being able to reflect the rapidly developing conditions Adaptability: in the case of the unpredictable “black swan” event, the digital environment can quickly adapt its projection and simulation capacities to the new and dynamic reality. Accuracy: the high-intensity, AI- assisted projections reach high-accuracy thanks to the above-mentioned complexity and depth but also thanks to the system of constant data-updates All these advantages will then shared with the relevant stakeholders in order to boost the readiness of the V4 economies, policies and societies for the looming turbulent futures.
Throughout the research, we combine pioneering ways of analysing (big) data on flows, interactions and political & regulatory frameworks. We work to develop a new analytical foundation, usable in real-world policy-making and business decisions. In the long run, our approach has the potential to enhance our capacities to assess the impact of globalisation and the capabilities of governments and institutions to manage the effects of globalization.
The research will run until 2024, with five regional public events (Prague, Wroclaw, Budapest, Bratislava and Brussels) to take place in late 2023 and early 2024, 1 hackathon facilitated by Politechnika Wroclawska - Department of Artificial Intelligence, and 5 workshops at regional universities.
The research consortium is composed of the following institutions:
Global Arena Research Institute (Prague)
We look forward to sharing our extraordinary results soon!
