SWEET call for proposals: Co-Evolution

SWEET Ko-Evolution - Bild 1

This call for proposals on the topic of “Co-Evolution of the Swiss Energy System and Swiss Society and Its Representation in Coordinated Simulations” has two objectives. Firstly, to investigate the interaction between the energy system and society and to apply the findings, e.g., in simulations. Secondly, to coordinate the simulations of the energy system that are being carried out by a variety of groups so that the simulations can be compared in a meaningful manner. By taking into account the findings from social sciences and humanities and coordinating the simulations, the power of the conclusions derived from the simulations is to be increased.

The coordination of the simulations builds on the activity CROSS (CooRdination Of Scenarios for SWEET), which puts the simulations of the first four SWEET consortia on a common basis. To focus the transdisciplinary cooperation on concrete topics, the consortium will submit so-called focus reports every two years.


The call will be conducted in two stages. Consortia had the possibility to submit pre-proposals until 16 June 2022. These were evaluated by an independent panel of experts. One consortium was invited to submit a full proposal. Only consortia in which natural sciences and engineering, economics and social sciences and humanities are equitably represented were considered.

The “Call Guideline” with all the associated forms is available for download under “Documents”.
