The mission of CEEP is to strengthen research and teaching in the field of environmental economics and policy. The CEEP unites the work of our faculty in these areas and thus forms a platform for further development and cooperation in research and teaching.
Below you will find all events, our contributions in research and teaching on "Environmental Economics and Policy" as well as our research collaborations and researchers.
Workshop in Environmental Policy Evaluation, January 20-21, 2023
The Swiss Institute for Empirical Research in Economics at the University of St. Gallen (SEW-HSG) is organizing the first Workshop in Environmental Policy Evaluation. The workshop brings together researchers from all fields (economics, psychology, climate science) who empirically evaluate environmental policy. In particular, research papers dealing with the application and development of innovative, empirical methods and/or with behavioral aspects of environmental policy are invited. The workshop will also include poster sessions.
Programme: Detailled programme of the Workshop
The workshop is officially supported by the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE).
