The think-tank uses the following methodologies to create and implement its findings. More information on the internal governance and output structure can be found in the enpi-lex tab.
Methodology 1: Research Projects (articles in link)
The #Complexity project deals with connectivity, boundaries, externalities, subjectivity and other scientifically informed forms of epistemic network creation, which aim to decipher and assist the reproduction of workable solutions, hybridization of concepts and sustainbility transitions.
The #Governance project deliberates on the future of the European institutional ecosystem and its concentric epistemic networks, values driven self-legitimization and policy instruments. It pays particular attention on the possibility of deploying scientific brainstorming missions for solving fragility, telecoupling, externalities, thus fostering sustainability and resilience.
Project #Circularity project investigates the circular economy as a blueprint and backbone for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations and the Green New Deal of the European Union, looks at evidence for unsustainability globally, conceptualizes translocal, interregional and multi-level interventions, reviews and puts forward implementation and improvement strategies.
The #Integration project explores the geospatial and regional multipolarity in today’s world. By paying particular attention on the role of comparative regional integration (LAC, EEU, ASEAN, SAARC, AU), it aims to deconstruct the externalities of globalisation and face them up to natural capital protection, good governance and scientific progress.
The #Finance project explores the centre-periphery fragmentations from the perspective of different scales, the possibilities to prop up socio-ecological innovations, the cyber economy and sustainable growth via regulatory, market, participatory and surveillance instruments, as well as sovereignty pooling. It aims to conceptualize a just, inclusive and ecological transition for the whole of the European economy that caters for its third country partners and is used as an instrument to achieve overarching goals – from resilience of the monetary system to climate change, intergenerational justice and spatial cohesion.
