Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Ms. Benigna Boza-Kiss completed her MSc studies in environmental sciences and policy in 2005, at the Central European University (Budapest, Hungary) where she continued to work as a researcher on energy end-use technologies, and on the policy-science interface developing evidence based policy support tools. She also worked at the Joint Research Center (JRC) of the European Commission and contributed to the development and assessment of the Energy Efficiency Directive. More recently, she worked as a consultant for the European Commission, UNEP, and the Regional Environmental Center among others. Her main research interest is in understanding the trends and dynamics of technology and policy developments in the area of sustainable development, climate change, SDGs, and their nexus with other fields.
Ms. Boza-Kiss joined the Transition to New Technologies program (TNT) in February 2017, and will be responsible for the maintenance and further development of two of the program’s research databases, namely the “Energy and Carbon Emissions Inventories Database” (ECDB) and the “Primary, Final and Useful Energy Database” (PFUDB). She will also carry out quantitative analysis of technology trends and policies of innovations that can enhance the fulfillment of the SDGs.
