We would like to extend our gratitude to Dr. Josef Richter, Dr. Bert Steenge, and Dr. Rossella Bardazzi for hosting this webinar entitled “Towards an IO (Historical) Archive”.

SHORT BIOGRAPHY & RESEARCH BACKGROUND

Dr. Josef Richter, now retired, spent most of his professional life in IO - statistics and empirical IO - analysis. Thanks to the help of Clopper Almon and a stay at the University of Maryland, the first IO model of the INFORUM type for Austria has already been created 1972. Josef had teaching obligations at the Universities of Innsbruck and Linz from 1983 onwards. His work has focused mainly on the empirical foundation of IO - analysis and on the problematic relationship between the producers of data and empirical economists. He has contributed to many IIOA conferences; his publications cover very different applications of input-output techniques. Josef was a founding member of the International Input-Output Association and was its first treasurer, serving from 1988 to 2006.

Dr. Bert Steenge studied at the University of Groningen, Faculty of Economics, specializing in Economics/Econometrics. He defended his PhD thesis in 1980. In 1986 he became Full Professor of Economics at the University of Twente, Faculty of Public Administration and Public Policy. In 2007 he returned to his ‘Alma Mater’, the University of Groningen, as emeritus. Bert has had a life-long interest in I-O modelling because of its versatility and deep roots, which originated in pre-revolutionary France and now cover a wide range of topics. His work has focused mainly on the theoretical side of topics in I-O, and he has contributed to many IIOA conferences, as well as being involved in related activities. His publications cover several fields and subfields of present-day I-O modelling. Bert served as a Council member from 2007 to 2015.

Dr. Rossella Bardazzi is associate professor of economics at the University of Florence, Italy. She has devoted her research activity to the theoretical and empirical analysis of macroeconometric and microsimulation models. She belongs to the international research network of macroeconometric models INFORUM (Interindustry Forecasting at the University of Maryland) and has contributed to the development of the Italian Multisectoral model (INTIMO). Her research interests include the development of multisectoral and microsimulation models, bilateral trade models, demand systems for household consumption, energy demand of enterprises and households. Rossella has served as a council member of the International Input-output Association (IIOA) from 2018 to 2023.

Abstract: The project to create an IO (historical) Archive was initiated to preserve relevant material on the early stages of IO analysis that would otherwise be lost forever, and to make these documents easily accessible to the IIOA membership. In this context, IO should be seen in a wider sense to include related areas such as regional economics, environmental economics, mathematical economics, and history of economic thought, as well as various satellite accounts extending the IO framework.

The aim of this webinar is to present the guiding principles and features of the project, and to report what has been achieved. The main milestones so far have been the creation of an efficient infrastructure (a web database) to make the material available to IIOA members, and the integration of more than 600 documents into this system. At the moment, many of the contributions to the IO conferences of 1971 to 1995 are already accessible. The focus of the webinar will be on the presentation of how the information already available in the Archive can be utilised. Various search options will be shown, and we will show how these documents can be accessed. The final part of the webinar will be devoted to outline possible next steps.






Bridging the gap between research and policy: lessons learned and future recommendations


Anne Owen, Associate Professor at the Sustainability Research Institute, University of Leeds, UK

Dr Anne Owen is an Associate Professor at the Sustainability Research Institute, University of Leeds, UK. Anne’s research focusses on the environmental impacts associated with household consumption, how different types of households contribute to climate change and what actions households can take to reduce their impact. For the past twelve years Anne has calculated the UK’s consumption-based emissions account for UK Government and this is now an Official Statistic reported annually. Anne’s work has been published widely with recent highlights including assessing carbon footprints from large scale financial transaction data and being quoted widely in a Guardian article on high impact lifestyles.

Dr Anne Owen reflects on a decade providing outputs from consumption-based accounting to National and Local Government, businesses and the third sector. She identifies the mismatch between what MRIO databases can calculate and what is required by policymakers as evidence for Net Zero targets and shares experiences of recent work advising how MRIO carbon multipliers can be (mis)used in calculating Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions for businesses.

Identify the host country of processing export


Cuihong Yang, Professor at Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the University of CAS

We are delighted to welcome Dr. Cuihong Yang, a professor at Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the University of CAS. Cuihong will be sharing her insights in a talk titled: "Identify the host country of processing export". The international relocation of processing export is regarded as a bellwether of the global production reconfiguration. However, directly identifying the host economies of processing export is challenging because of the lack of data. In her talk, Cuihong will discuss how to capture the industrial relocation of processing activities by combining the input-output model and optimization method.

Using the hypothetical extraction method to understand the role of materials and manufacturing


Edgar Hertwich, International Chair in Industrial Ecology at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, member of the International Resource Panel and the European Scientific Advisory Board on Climate Change

Edgar Hertwich is International Chair in Industrial Ecology at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. He also serves as a member of the International Resource Panel and the European Scientific Advisory Board on Climate Change. His work addresses footprint analysis, factor trade, technology assessment, and sustainable development. The talk seeks to clarify the relationship of the hypothetical extraction method, linkage analysis as developed by Cella and Duarte, and the supply chain impact approach by Cabernard. Hypothetical extraction offers a clear interpretation of linkages as a contribution to value added or other factors added. Recent applications on the carbon footprint of materials and machinery and equipment will be used to illustrate the role of the methods.
