European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE)
The European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE) is a non-profit international scientific association. Interests span traditional economics, agricultural economics, forestry, and natural resource economics. Founded in 1990, EAERE has over 1200 members in 80 countries, from academic institutions, the public sector, and the private industry.
The aims of EAERE are: (a) to contribute to the development and application of environmental and resource economics as a science in Europe; (b) to encourage and improve communication between teachers, researchers and students in environmental and resource economics in the different European countries; (c) to develop and encourage cooperation between university level teaching institutions and research institutions in Europe.
Membership is open to individuals who by their profession, training and/or function are involved in environmental and resource economics as a science, and to institutions which operate in fields connected with the aims of the Association.
Through the Association's Journals, Environmental and Resource Economics
(ERE) and Review of Environmental Economics and Policy
(REEP), the Annual Conference
, the annual Summer Schools
, the biannual Newsletter
, and affiliation with her sister association in North America (AERE), EAERE provides many forums for exchanging ideas relevant to the allocation and management of natural and environmental resources.
Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM)
Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan research institution devoted to the study of sustainable development and global governance. Officially recognized by the President of the Italian Republic in 1989 and in full operation since 1990, FEEM has grown to become a leading research centre, providing timely and objective analysis on a wide range of environmental, energy and global economic issues.
FEEM's mission is to improve – through the rigor of its research – the credibility and quality of decision-making in public and private spheres. This goal is achieved by creating an international and multidisciplinary network of researchers working on several innovative programmes, by providing and promoting training in specialized areas of research, by disseminating research results through a wide range of outreach activities, and by delivering directly to policy makers via participation in various institutional fora.
FEEM's operations are inspired by some guiding principles. FEEM sets a bold research agenda addressing big questions and emerging issues in the economic and social context. While strictly linked with the academic community, it embraces intellectual curiosity and supports risk-taking in pursuing research. Its agenda emphasizes real world issues and the policy relevance of the outputs.
FEEM brings together researchers from various fields at different levels of experience, in order to fertilize ideas and foster the accumulation of human capital inside and outside the organization.
FEEM promotes excellence, boldness of ideas and creativeness, but quality, rigor and impact remain the distinctive features of its activity. Research outputs are theoretically sound, fact-based, and generally validated by the scientific community through peer review processes. FEEM aims at translating analyses into practical ideas, and at presenting them in user-friendly formats to inform and shape the public debate.
While remaining thoroughly Italian in location and perspective, FEEM promotes the international dimension of activities by selecting topics of global importance, by creating networks and partnerships in various countries, and by attracting researchers trained and working abroad.
