Project Partners

The FP7 Cooperation programme fosters collaborative research across Europe, and other partner countries, through projects by transnational consortia of industry and academia.

The One Planet Economy Network is one such collaborative research project and is managed by a network of partners that include the following organisations:


Ecologic Institute is a private not-for-profit think tank for applied environmental research, policy analysis and consultancy with offices in Berlin, Brussels, Vienna, and Washington DC. An independent, non-partisan body, Ecologic Institute is dedicated to bringing fresh ideas to environmental policies and sustainable development. Ecologic Institute's work programme focuses on obtaining practical results. It covers the entire spectrum of environmental issues, including the integration of environmental concerns into other policy fields. Founded in 1995, Ecologic Institute is a partner in the network of Institutes for European Environmental Policy. Ecologic Institute acts in the public interest; donations are tax-deductible.

Global Footprint NetworkGlobal Footprint Network promotes a sustainable economy by advancing the Ecological Footprint, a tool that makes sustainability measurable. Together with its partners, the network coordinates research, develops methodological standards, and provides decision makers with robust resource accounts to help the human economy operate within the Earth’s ecological limits.

Institute for European Environmental PolicyInstitute of European Environmental Policy (IEEP) is an independent not for profit institute dedicated to advancing an environmentally sustainable Europe through policy analysis, development and dissemination.

Norwegian University of Science and TechnologuNorwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is a university with a broad academic scope that has its main focus on technology and the natural sciences. NTNU’s research has an international focus and can be characterized by being at the leading edge in specific areas of technology, having a broad disciplinary scope and an interdisciplinary approach. NTNU has selected six thematic interdisciplinary strategic areas that address the key societal challenges where it is especially qualified to make a contribution: Energy and petroleum, resources and environment, Globalization, Information and communication technology, Medical technology, Marine and maritime research, Materials technology.

SEIStockholm Environmental Institute (SEI) developed the REAP methodology, which pioneers the use of environmentally extended Input Output analysis to calculate the ecological, carbon and green house gas footprints of products, industries, countries, local authorities and neighbourhoods. SEI will be working with project partners to develop EUREAPA (a tool based on a multi-regional input-output model to calculate the footprint of the EU and member states), a collection of future scenarios for the European Economy, and analysis of policy to move the EU towards a One Planet Economy.

SERISustainable Europe Research Institute (SERI) is one of the leading European research institutions in the field of environmental accounting and material flow analysis, integrated economic-environmental modelling, policies for a sustainable natural resources use, and indicators for sustainable development.

University of TwenteThe University of Twente is a young, entrepreneurial university. It sets standards in the field of new technology and seeks to stimulate change, renewal and progress in society. Our strength lies in our capacity to combine. We work with the technologies of the future - information technology, biotechnology and nanotechnology - in which behavioural and social science research play a vital role. After all, the most interesting and relevant innovation takes place at the interface between technology and its implications for mankind and society. We are active in areas such as health, water, sustainability, security and education.

WWF-UK WWF-UK is the world’s leading independent conservation organisation. And we’re creating solutions to the most serious conservation challenges facing the planet, building a future where people and nature thrive together. Ensuring economies are organised in a sustainable way is one such challenge – so we develop a range of initiatives to support this goal, helping to bring sustainability and equity to production, trade and consumption.
