Policy Session at the EAERE Conference organised by the EAERE Policy Outreach Committee.
More information will follow.

Introduction: Jos Delbeke and Simone Borghesi

Format: two invited speakers (one scholar + one policy maker) followed by roundtable with participation of POC members

Invited Speakers: Peter Zapfel (DG Climate) and Christian Gollier (University of Toulouse)


The session organized by the EAERE POC intends to discuss how to facilitate and create a more integrated dialogue between academia and policy world. The two contexts have departed from each other over time, becoming increasingly technical and partially separated. To fill the gap between these two realms, there is a need to substantiate quantitatively what policies work and what their relative contribution is. In line with the aim of the EAERE POC (i.e. providing advice and support to EU policy makers and institutions in designing policy interventions), a few questions will be addressed during the session to facilitate and promote the discussion: (i) Which policies instruments have performed better/worst so far? (ii) What are the main results emerging from ex-post evaluation of specific policies? (iii) Where are such evaluations mainly needed?
