European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE)
The European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE) is a non-profit international scientific association which aims 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. Founded in 1990, EAERE has over 400 members from Europe and beyond, from academic institutions, the public sector, and the private industry. Interests span traditional economics, agricultural economics, forestry, and natural resource economics. The aims of the Association are mainly accomplished by organising workshops, conferences, events, exhibitions, seminars, meetings, and discussions, by cooperating in editing professional journals, and by promoting postgraduate education for junior scholars. In particular, EAERE pursues its objectives through four main delivery mechanisms: EAERE annual Conferences, the annual European Summer School in Resource and Environmental Economics, the journal Environmental and Resource Economics (ERE) and the EAERE Newsletter.
