The aim of the project is to assess the impact of achieving climate neutrality on the labour market in the Śląskie Voivodeship. A just transformation of the Silesia region is crucial for reducing emissions of the energy sector and minimizing the social costs of this process.
Scientific and applied studies constitute the core activity of the Institute for Structural Research. We conduct all our research projects with a strong commitment to objectivity and methodology. We use the best available data and modern analytical tools. We focus on the labour market, demography, family and social policy, public finances, the healthcare system, energy and climate and macroeconomics. We are particularly interested in the relationship between individual areas and research studies that have a significant impact on public policy.
The aim of the project is to assess the relationship between energy poverty and health. We will use a field study in Tychy and Ruda Śląska. Our project is one of the first studies in Poland that combines data on health and energy use in households.
The aim of the project is to characterise and explain the decisive events, processes, major systems’ transformations and their effects on the transition of European CCIR toward clean energy; but also, to prevent the rise of undesirable outcomes like the rise of populism and anti-democratic attitudes.
IBS researchers in COST actions
Energy poverty and rural NEET’s social exclusion are two areas of research that IBS is working on together with the scientist network funded via the European Co-operation in Science and Technology (COST) scheme.

IBS research at COP24
We presented our research at COP24 in Katowice on the Polish coal industry, low-emissions transformation pathways, and energy poverty.
Risks associated with the decarbonisation of the Polish power system
Decarbonisation pathway will involve higher costs than the baseline pathway, but the electricity sector will emit half the CO2 by 2050. Read the key findings from the IBS report and seminar (28.11.).
