The European University Institute (FSR), Universidad Carlos III, DIW Berlin, Technical University Berlin, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, University College London and Université Libre de Bruxelles are organising the third edition of the PhD Summer School on “Economic Foundations for Energy and Climate Policies”.
The Summer School will be held on September 19-23, 2022 at the European University Institute, on the Tuscan hills surrounding Florence. The programme of the School will consist of four days (Monday afternoon to Friday morning) of teaching by prominent academics, supplemented by students’ presentations and a roundtable with policymakers.
The instructors are:
Given the uncertainty of the pandemic, it is planned to organise the school in person although a hybrid format may be considered in case the health situation gets critical. Please note that as this is residential training, the room will have a limited capacity to ensure your safety. Thus, only a selected number of participants will be admitted.
The EUI cares for the safety and security of all those on campus. Thus, the EUI safety rules required by the current situation will be applied (which might include the use of face masks and the possession of the EU Digital Covid Certificate “Green Pass”).
The summer school is organised with the support of EAERE.
The underlying motivation of the School is to contrast the increasing imbalance of theory and econometric analysis in the field and make a step towards bringing the field to the frontier of theory – combining theory with empirical foundation and relevance, aiming at supporting students to publish beyond field journals.
The teaching will be of a ‘learning by doing’ style based on instructors’ papers that are considered frontier in the field, where students can see applications of methodologies/models that they have previously learned.
The instructors are all researchers and prominent academics who can balance theory, data and relevance:
Accepted applicants will be provided with readings in advance to support their preparation for the School. Beyond the classes, there will be a roundtable with policymakers as well as students’ research presentation sessions.
