Since 2000 the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE), the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM), and the Venice International University (VIU) have been successfully running their European Summer School in Resource and Environmental Economics. The broader objective of this series of events is to provide advanced training for young researchers from all over Europe and beyond on European issues of environmental and resource economics.
The Summer School series is addressed to small groups of doctoral and post-doctoral students in environmental and resource economics from all over Europe and beyond. They follow a traditional structure: lectures by professors, PhD students' presentation, reading time, consultation sessions and social events. The specialised topic varies from year to year and reflect issues that are currently lively areas of new research and policy interest. The faculty is comprised of leaders in the field, and offers an overall coverage of the specialist area.

This year's Summer School will take place from the 4th to the 10th of July at the VIU campus on the Island of San Servolo, in Venice, located just in front of Piazza San Marco.

The theme of this Summer School is Trade, Property Rights and Biodiversity. An important condition for the successful design of policies regarding trade and biodiversity is that it takes into account the complex interactions between ecological, economic and institutional factors, including property rights arrangements. The correct assessment of the impacts of trade on resource management and economic welfare is indispensable in order to propose policy measures to remedy externalities. Issues arising include rent-seeking, lobbying and corruption; endogenous institutions and market development; and economic geography.
Biodiversity is one of the key environmental problems. Protection of biodiversity is high on the policy agenda. The Summer School will make an important contribution to capacity building in this area, because it will give PhD students an excellent opportunity to communicate with internationally renowned experts in the field. These experts will share with them the most recent advances.
