Summer School – Sustainable cities

 

Deadline for applications: April 24th, 2017

Summary
Urbanization and cities development are a key issue regarding climate change. Recent advances in urban economics have studied, for instance, relationships between urban structure, the design of public policies and environmental nuisances. This Summer School aims at studying this topic. During the school, Professor Matthew Kahn, a leading researcher in urban economics, will deliver a 6 hours lecture about his works on urban growth and environmental challenges. The second day will provide the opportunity to the participants to present a selected work. No more than 8 papers will be selected.

PSE Summer School – Climate Change Economics

 

Deadline for applications: March 15th, 2017

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 and Katheline Schubert.
Program supervisor: Fanny Henriet

Everything you need to know about the Climate Change programme 2017 is in the dedicated brochure: download this document (pdf format) with all the courses objectives, topics, structure and references.

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.
