IAERE Second Annual Conference

IAERE 2nd Annual Conference
Simone Borghesi and Alessio D'Amato
The Second Annual Conference of the Italian Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (IAERE, University of Milan, Italy, 13-14 February 2014) has proved as a very successful and lively venue for the Italian academics and researchers specialized in Environmental and Resource Economics.
The birth of the Association, together with the first annual conference, held last year in Ferrara, responded to the widely perceived need to fill in an "institutional gap", which appeared in sharp contrast with the well renowned research and organizational efforts of Italian environmental economists all over the world.

This year's conference has been an additional important step in IAERE's growth process, as confirmed by the conference success in terms of numbers and of quality of papers.
The lively attitude of IAERE can be inferred from the attempts to mix up with other Italian and foreign research associations (whether environmentally focused or not), the joint session with SIE (the Italian Economic Association) and the goal to start cooperating with other national Associations in the field being informative signals in this respect.
The high quality and dynamic young component of IAERE is itself a source of hope for the future of Environmental and Resource Economics in Italy. So...see you next year in Padua!
