TRAINING: 2013 EAERE-FEEM-VIU European Summer School in Resource and Environmental Economics
The European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE), Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) and Venice International University (VIU) announce their annual European Summer School in Resource and Environmental Economics for postgraduate students.
The 2013 Summer School will take place from June 30 to July 6, at the VIU campus on the Island of San Servolo, in Venice, located just in front of St. Mark’s Square. The theme of this Summer School is Uncertainty, Innovation and Climate Change.
Uncertainty is a key component of climate change policy making. Although the anthropogenic warming of the planet is unquestioned, there still exist large uncertainties affecting several dimensions of the problem. From the severity and rapidity of changes, to effectiveness of innovation, the future is crucially characterised by uncertainty.
The Summer School will be of interest for students who have a thorough understanding of climate change economics and would like to contribute with original work focusing on the stochastic dimension of the problem.
The lectures will broadly cover:
- modelling tools to deal with uncertainty;
- expert elicitation of uncertain processes (with a specific focus on innovation process);
- risk perception and behavioral responses to risk and uncertainty related to climate change;
- integrated assessment modelling of climate change under uncertainty.
Deadline: February 1, 2013
