In 2018, the CMCC Foundation strengthens its role in the arena of environmental and resource economics with the new task of managing the Secretariat of the Italian Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (IAERE), a scientific Association founded in 2012 to contribute to the development and application of these disciplines in Italy.

CMCC will host the IAERE Secretariat in 2018 and 2019, the same period in which will manage the Secretariat of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE). 

The IAERE Secretariat is now based at CMCC’s new office in Venice (Edificio Porta dell’Innovazione – Piano 2 – Via della Libertà, 12 – 30175 Marghera-Venice, Italy).

The decision has been taken during the IAERE General Assembly of Members at the Sixth IAERE Annual Conference, on 15-16 February 2018, in Turin, Italy.
A great success in terms of submission (143 papers) and in participation (140 persons).
CMCC Foundation researchers Francesco Bosello, Andrea Bigano, Gabriele Standardi, Shouro Dasgupta, Laura Bonacorsi, Carlo Giupponi, Carlos Dionisio Pérez Blanco joined the conference.
During the closing ceremony, the Association announced the IAERE 2018 Young Environmental Economist Award, a recognition given to the best paper presented by a young economist at the Annual Conference, with which the Association aims to reward new ideas addressing key environmental and resource economic issues at the national, European and global scale; and the IAERE 2018 Best Poster Award, which will be granted to the best poster presented, according to criteria of research quality and originality.

IAERE’s activities in course include:

Moreover, IAERE members will be invited to take part in the 2019 elections taking place during the next Annual Conference. A President and two ordinary Council members will be elected. IAERE Members are encouraged to nominate potential candidates: for this purpose, a call for nominations will be launched during the month of May.
