IAERE Young Environmental Economist Award

The IAERE Young Environmental Economist Award is given to the best paper presented by a young economist at the Annual Conference of the Italian Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (IAERE).
With this Award the Association aims to reward new ideas addressing key environmental and resource economic issues at the national, European and global scale. Both theoretical and empirical papers will be considered without any restriction of topics. 
Eligible candidates should be less than 33 years of age and no more than five years past a PhD defence, should they have a PhD. Presenters indicate their intention to submit their candidacy to the Award during the Conference paper submission process. Only full papers submissions are considered: submitters of extended abstracts are not eligible for this award. Priority will be given to paper written by single author or multiple authors complying with the age requirement.
There is a monetary reward of 1,000 for the presenter of the winning paper.

The Selection Committee comprises the Conference Programme Committee and the IAERE Council, and is co-chaired by the IAERE President and the chair of the Conference Programme Committee.
