Since 2000 the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE) and the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) have been successfully running their European Summer School in Resource and Environmental Economics. The School was run in partnership with Venice International University (VIU) until 2018, with the only exception of year 2002. The School of year 2019 is run in cooperation with VIU.

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 reflects 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.

The Summer Schools usually take place just before or immediately after the EAERE Annual Conference (late June) at the VIU campus on the Island of San Servolo, in Venice, located just in front of Piazza San Marco.

From 2006 to 2009 Summer School series received funding from the European Community's Sixth Framework Programme, Marie Curie Actions - Human Resources and Mobility, within the project ESS RESECON (European Summer School in Resource and Environmental Economics).

The 2010 edition was organised in partnership with the International Center for Climate Governance (ICCG), a joint initiative of the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) and the Fondazione Giorgio Cini (FGC), developed  in cooperation with the Euro-Mediterranean Centre for Climate Change (CMCC), which focuses its research activities on the design of climate policy and related governing institutions.

The 2013 edition was part of the ICARUS project, a European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant funded by the European Commission under the umbrella of the 7th Framework Programme.

The 2016 edition was part of the COBHAM project, a european Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant funded by European Union's Seventh Framework Programme.
