The 2016 Summer School will take place from June 26th to July 2nd 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 2016 Summer School is the Field Experiments in Environmental and Resource Economics.

Over the past years field experiments have flourished in environmental and resource economics. The 2016 EAERE summer schools aims at discussing the most relevant research about field experimentation, with direct relevance of environmental economics. Key relevant topics will be explored in depth, including preferences, resources and valuation, cooperation, energy and water conservation, development and growth, as well as climate change. Classes will discuss the latest developments in the literature, and students will have the chance to present their own work in front of the class and the faculty.

This School is organised in partnership with the project COBHAM "The role of consumer behaviour and heterogeneity in the integrated assessment of energy and climate policies", a European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant funded by the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) / ERC grant agreement n° 336155. The objective of COBHAM – hosted by Politecnico di Milano in collaboration with the Euro- Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC) – is to study behavior and interactions among individuals and their impact on energy efficiency and climate change mitigation.

Admission and Scholarships

The Summer School is targeted to PhD and postgraduate students. Admission is conditional on the presentation of each student's 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 necessarily completely finished their thesis.
Application is restricted to 2016 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.
