Decision support system to assess sustainable local development from Renewable Energy Sources

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research aims to develop, build and validate a Decision Support System (DSS). This DSS will be able to assess and support the decision-makers’ strategic choice, in order to promote the local development of rural and mountain areas using renewable energy. The researcher will help to develop the decision-support process and the evaluation model (aggregation, criteria, weights, veto and thresholds), that should be adapted to the different participating regions in order to assess sustainability and feasibility of strategies in respect to the ecosystem services maintenance. The DSS will be tasked to support the decision-maker, and at the same time, to create useful information for the debate on potentialities and critical issues of the local development strategies based on renewable energy.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
