Each summer, EAERE organises its Annual Conference, an invaluable opportunity for meeting, exchanging and debating current topics in environmental and resource economics. With approximately 700 individual participants attending from all over the world, international researchers scholars, economists and students convene to the EAERE Annual Conferences in the spirit of economic discovery, research, analysis and collaboration. Conferences are held in European countries and unite European participants together with their national and international neighbours.
The Conference activities include keynote speeches and policy panels, the David Pearce Lectures, paper presentations, discussions and round tables, a book exhibition involving the most well-known publishers of environmental economic issues and a job market where universities, public and private institutes and corporations may interview the best young environmental economists for employment. Economists, including those who are not currently members of the EAERE, are invited to submit papers for presentation at the Annual Conferences. It is hoped that papers presented represent a broad spectrum of environmental and resource economics.
Every four years since 1998, EAERE’s Annual Conference is held within the World Congress of Environmental and Resource Economists, an important international event organised together with AERE. From 2018, the event will be co-organised by AERE, EAAERE and EAERE.
