AMSE (Aix-Marseille School of Economics) and CEE-M (Center for Environmental Economics Montpellier) organize the first Spring School in Environmental Economics in the context of the ANR-funded research project GREEN-Econ. This event takes place in May 2018 from the 22th to the 25th. This Spring School is divided into two parts: two lectures and around 15 student presentations will be organized during the first two days, while the last two days will be dedicated to a workshop. This call is dedicated to PhD students who are willing to present one of their research works. We cover, for the selected students, travel and accommodation expenses for the four days of the Spring School.

The main topic are: biodiversity and ecosystems, commons management, non-renewable resources, pollution, resources and experimental economics and the two lectures will be on:
• Fossil resources and renewables: recent developments par Hassan Benchekroun (McGill University)
• Ecological-economic modelling for biodiversity par Luc Doyen (GREThA & CNRS)
Speakers of the workshop
Dominique Ami, Hassan Benchekroun, Olivier Chanel, Luc Doyen, Fanny Henriet, Gilles Lafforgue, Emmanuelle Lavaine, Fabien Prieur, Martin Quaas, Nicolas Quérou, Katheline Schubert, Hubert Stahn, Marc Willinger

PSE Summer School – Climate Change Economics


Deadline for applications: February 25th, 2018

The impact of climate change on the economy and its appropriate regulation have emerged as central themes in public economics.
The PSE Summer School offers research-oriented teaching by leading experts in their fields, in a one-week program on Climate Change Economics, entirely run in English. It offers a full-time mix of courses and tutorials, essentially taught by PSE professors. It will take place in Paris. It is aimed at professionals, researchers, as well as graduate students in Economics and Finance (Masters and PhD). Undergraduate students in Economics will be considered only if their profile is exceptionally strong.

This program aims to teach participants the latest progress in research on the topic and to familiarize them with the relevant methods used to analyze the issues.

Instructors: Mireille Chiroleu-Assouline, Fanny Henriet, David Martimort, Katrin Millock, Hélène Ollivier, Wolfram Schlenker and Katheline Schubert.
Program supervisor: Hélène Ollivier

EAERE-FEEM-VIU European Summer School
in Resource and Environmental Economics
Macroeconomics, Growth, and the Environment 
2-8 July 2017 – Venice, Italy


Deadline for applications: February 15th, 2017

The European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE), Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) and Venice International University (VIU) are pleased to announce their annual European Summer School in Resource and Environmental Economics for postgraduate students.

The 2017 Summer School will take place from the 2nd to the 8th of July at the VIU campus on the Island of San Servolo, in Venice, located just in front of St. Mark’s Square. The topic covered by the 2017 Summer School is the Macroeconomics, Growth, and the Environment.

Some of the most pressing environmental and resource problems – including climate change, deforestation, urban air pollution – are closely related to economic growth. Environmental policies have macroeconomic impacts. The aim of the 2017 Summer School is to provide tools and methods to study the intersection between macroeconomics, economic growth, and the environment.

The lectures will first present theories of how environmental problems are coupled to – and can be decoupled from – population growth and technical change in the long run and will present work on how environmental policies affect the macroeconomy, growth and the direction of technological change. We will study green growth policies, long-run carbon pricing policies and the political and distributional aspects of environmental policies, with special attention to threshold effects and tipping points. The methods used in the summer school are mainly analytically-solvable dynamic models, calibrated models, and stochastic models.

Admission and Scholarships

The Summer School is aimed at Ph.D. students who are writing a thesis on the dynamic macro-economics of environmental and resource problems or climate change and want to engage into a highly interactive exchange with experts in the field. Students will be asked to present an advanced version of their research work and will receive valuable feedback from fellow students and from the School professors.

Application is restricted to 2017 EAERE members, both European and non European citizens.

The application form, information on participation fee and scholarships, and the Summer School regulations are available in the Summer School website.
