14th Belgian Environmental Economics Day 2021
The Belgian Environmental Economics Day 2021 (BEED) provides an opportunity to researchers in the areas of environmental, resource and ecological economics from universities, university colleges, research institutes and research consultancy firms in Belgium, to present their work.
It is an academic meeting open to all interested stakeholders (academics, public servants, consultants, students, …). BEED aims at making the scientific discipline of environment economics more visible in Belgium. It can be regarded as an intermediate platform between individual researchers and traditional international professional associations.
BEED is a one-day scientific meeting. It typically consists of a number of contributed sessions and an academic or policy keynote. The academic keynote speaker for this year is Prof. Rick van der Ploeg (Oxford University).
Researchers are invited to submit recent research or policy papers to the thematic and general sessions. Out of the submissions, the program committee selects a number of papers to be presented during the BEED in plenary sessions of 20-25 minutes.
The working language is English for presentations and discussions. Papers (full papers or reports) can be submitted in English, Dutch or French.
Estelle Cantillon (ULB), Sandra Rousseau (KU Leuven), Brent Bleys (UGent), Thierry Bréchet (UCL-CORE), Johan Eyckmans (KU Leuven), Sébastien Lizin (UHasselt), Robert Malina (UHasselt), Stef Proost (KU Leuven), Steven Van Passel (UAntwerpen); Frank Venmans (UMONS; LSE), Tom Verbeke (KU Leuven)
