French Association of Environmental and Resource Economists

Newsletter – October 2017

 

Hello everyone!

 

We were pleased to see each other again at the various conferences held during the summer, but especially at our annual conference in Nancy. No more lectures, no more summer, the start of the new academic year has now taken place, thesis defences are announced and it is time to bring new Master’s students to research in environmental economics…

 

Election of a new honorary member of the FAERE

The FAERE General Assembly, meeting in Nancy during the 4th Annual Conference, elected this year a new honorary member: André Grimaud, Professor emeritus at the University of Toulouse 1-Capitole (Ecole d’ Economie de Toulouse). After devoting a first part of his research career to the urban or industrial economy, he turned to the theory of economic growth, focusing in particular on the importance of research and development and taking into account the dematerialization of the economy. Finally, he has devoted a significant part of his research to the economics of the environment and natural resources, including the issues raised by climate change.

Since its creation, André Grimaud has accompanied the FAERE whose members have had the pleasure of being its students or co-authors.

Young Economist best paper FAERE Award

From 2016 onwards, FAERE awards an annual prize for the best article by young economists at the annual conference.

The 2017 award winner is Marion Dupoux (University of Gothenburg), for an article entitled “Beyond perfect substitutability in public good games: heterogenous structures of preference“, immediately accepted for publication in our Working Papers series.

 

Thank you to the organizers and congratulations to the participants of the FAERE conference in Nancy!

The LEF and BETA teams, led by Serge Garcia and Philippe Delacote, hosted the 4th FAERE annual conference in Nancy. The participants were about 120 for 82 papers presented and the organisation was as efficient as at previous conferences in Montpellier, Toulouse and Bordeaux.

Chris Costello (UC Santa Barbara) and Alexander Pfaff (Duke University) gave brilliant and stimulating plenary lectures.

Finally, the weather was good, especially to enjoy the sound and light show on the front of the town hall, Stanislas Square, just before the conference dinner dessert.

A challenge for Aix-Marseille next year!
