1st ECO-SOS Workshop on Economics and Sustainability (2/10/2020)


1st ECO-SOS Workshop on

Economics and Sustainability

Reus, October 2nd 2020

The Research Centre on Economics and Sustainability (ECO-SOS) is a research centre created in 2010 as CREIP (Research Centre in Industrial and Public Economics), that recently moved to sustainability issues, in line with research interests of its members. Specifically, ECO-SOS studies the connection between sustainability and the following areas of interest: environmental and climate economics, health economics, regional and urban economics, education and labor market business and innovation, energy and natural resources, industrial organization, economic policy, game theory and environmental conflicts, and transport and tourism.

Workshop objectives

This workshop provides an opportunity to all those interested in the interaction between sustainability and economic growth and, in general terms to address global challenges faced by our economies when designing growth strategies. In this sense we want to analyze environmental implications of economic activities, quantify its negative externalities and provide proposals to achieve more sustainable growth scenarios.

Researchers are encouraged to submit both empirical and theoretical papers that are broadly consistent with the ECO-SOS areas of interest. However, we welcome specially papers related to the following topics:

·        Sustainability and environmental conflicts.

·        Sustainability and territorial strategies.

·        Sustainability and energy.

·        Sustainability and firm dynamics.

·        Sustainability and innovation.

·        Sustainability and climate change.

The workshop is open to both young and experienced researchers, Ph.D. students, post-doctoral researchers, and government and non-governmental institutions.

Keynote Speakers

We are happy to welcome the following keynote speaker:

Richard Tol (University of Sussex)
