EAERE-ETH European Winter School on “Spatial Environmental and Resource Economics”
Deadline for applications: September 13th, 2019 – Since year 2018, the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE) and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich) have been jointly organising the EAERE-ETH European Winter School series in Environmental and Resource Economics. The School takes place in Monte Verità, Ascona (Switzerland).
The topic of the 2020 Winter School will be “Spatial Environmental and Resource Economics”. The purpose of the 2020 Winter School is to present methods for studying environmental and resource economics in a spatial-dynamic framework, along with current results regarding the optimization of such models the emergence of spatial patterns and optimal agglomerations, and the design of policies. Issues related to spatial heterogeneity and spatiotemporal dynamics, and spatial econometrics, along with applications to policy design in areas such as resource management, urban expansion, pollution control, and climate change will be addressed. The School will be coordinated by Prof. Anastasios Xepapadeas.
