Business

Using real options to estimate the value of an investment in R&D

Chemistry

Using cutting edge research to energise CO2 to CO using light.

Environment

Supporting high tech research to reduce greenhouse gasses.

This is the website of an Irish Research Council funded project to use Real Options Analysis to estimate the value of R&D projects into Carbon Dioxide Recycling Technology.

We are based in Dublin City University in the Business School and in the School of Chemical Sciences. The team comprises Peter DeeneyMark Cummins, Katharina Heintz and Mary Pryce.

Using Monte Carlo Methods

This allows us to estimate the value of an R&D project

Review of the Research

Review of the Research

A lot done, a lot more to do

There has been considerable use of real options to price R&D in pharmaceutical research. We extend it to commodity research.
