in cooperation with
University of Bologna

Bologna (Italy), 24-27 September 2018


The Italian Association of Environmental and Resource Economists organises a School series aiming at providing advanced training for young international scholars on issues of environmental and resource economics.

The 3rd IAERE School will be organized in cooperation with the University of Bologna, and will focus on experimental methods in environmental and resource economics. It will take place in Bologna, at the University of Bologna, from the 24th to the 28th of September, 2018.

Experiments have become an established methodology of investigation in the social sciences, with highly relevant applications to environmental and natural resource economics.
The aim of the course is twofold. First, the course intends to introduce young scholars from environmental economics to the methodology of laboratory, field and online experiments through dedicated lectures from experts in the field. Second, it strives to present and discuss specific applications to environmental topics, which are at the frontier of the current research. Students will have the possibility to elaborate and present a research project developed during the week.
