Franziska Schütze is an active contributor to the Green Growth research process since 2012 and the treasurer of GCF since 2014.

She has a background in economics and obtained a 'Bachelor of Science in Economics and Geography' at the Utrecht School of Economics (the Netherlands) as well as a 'Master of Science in International Economics and Business' in Utrecht and at Lund University (Sweden). Furthermore, she complemented her studies with courses on Sustainable Development and Social Entrepreneurship at the Copenhagen Business School (Denmark). Prior to GCF, she worked in the private sector as an analyst for a venture capital fund for sustainable businesses in the area of renewable energy, e-mobility, natural resources and green IT.

At GCF, her research aims at understanding economic implications of climate and energy policies and the concept of green growth and green economy. She has contributed to the development of an open source multi-agent model that assesses costs and benefits of climate and energy policy (German Green Growth Model) and to the preparation of the GCF report “Investment-oriented climate policy: An opportunity for Europe” based on policy analysis using the general equilibrium model GEM-E3 and building upon an earlier GCF report “A new growth path for Europe”. 
Her current focus lies on the economic assessment of green fiscal, financial and monetary policies within the research projects SYMPHONY, and the role of the financial sector and related risks and opportunities within the research project SIMPOL.
