How do subsidies affect land use?

The European Union has set ambitious targets for the agricultural sector with the Green Deal until 2030. To achieve these, land use and land management need to be regulated in a finely tuned way. Alexander Mozdzen, PhD student at the Department of Statistics at the University of Klagenfurt, in collaboration with Tamás Kristin (IIASA) and Gregor Kastner (University of Klagenfurt), has developed an innovative Bayesian space-time model to analyse the impact of agricultural subsidies on land use in Europe. The model aims to provide a clearer assessment of which policies have been effective in regulating land use.

How can renewable energy satisfy the demand for electricity as far as possible?

Wind, sun and water do not produce constant amounts of energy. What’s more, renewable energy is difficult to store. Michaela Szölgyenyi is working on mathematical methods that can be used, for example, to better predict how much electricity a solar power plant will most likely produce at any given time.

Fewer empty kilometres on Austria’s railways

At present, an ÖBB dispatcher still has to manually assign empty freight wagons to requests from clients. The aim of the project “Partially Automated Empty Wagon Dispatching” is to support this process with software that suggests optimal utilisation. The research forms part of the TARO project, with which ÖBB aims to leverage automation and digitalisation to increase its capacities, boost productivity and thereby ensure high quality.
