CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Belpasso International Summer School on Environmental and Resource Economics
The Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Catania, the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE) and the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM), with the sponsorship of the Municipality of Belpasso, are pleased to announce the Belpasso International Summer School on Environmental and Resource Economics for postgraduate students. The 2011 Summer School will take place from the 4th to the 10th of September at Belpasso, a city in the Province of Catania, Sicily, Italy. The theme of this Summer School is Extremes: Natural Disasters in Changing Climate.
The Summer School is targeted to postgraduate students. Admission is conditional on the presentation by each student of his/her doctoral work; therefore PhD students who want to apply normally need to be advanced in their PhD to have produced at least one substantive chapter, but not to have completely finished their thesis. Application is restricted to 2011 EAERE members, both European and non European citizens. Given the highly interactive activities planned at the Summer School, the number of participants is limited to 20. There is no participation fee. All applicants can apply for a scholarship.
Deadline: 15 May, 2011
