3rd ECO-SOS Workshop on Economics and Sustainability:

                                               Gender Challenges

                                                                              Reus, May 12th 2023

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 in addition to the main topic of Gender Challenges:

·        Gender and labour market.

·        Gender and economic growth.

·        Gender and health.

·        Gender and firm.

·        Gender and education.

·        Gender and innovation.
