Early Career Researcher Workshops

Annual Early Career Researcher Workshop

CREEA|ACERE organizes an annual workshop for PhD students and other early career researchers working on topics in environmental and resource economics. The workshop is held in June, normally following the Canadian Economics Association annual conference.

Applications are welcome from those based in economics departments, business schools, schools of public policy, etc., researching any aspect of environmental economics, environmental behaviour, energy economics, climate change, green business or natural resource problems using theory, empirics or experimental methods.

Each edition of the workshop convenes around 20 early-stage researchers from inside and outside Canada from institutions such as Yale, Queens, Amsterdam, UBC, Ottawa, Paris, Columbia, McGill, Berkeley, Alberta, Cornell, Oslo, Toronto, Vienna, Calgary, LSE, etc.

Sessions are built around 30 minute presentations, giving participants the chance to expose their ideas and get feedback from junior and senior scholars. Social time will give an excellent opportunity for participants to network, exchange ideas and experiences and get to know each other. The atmosphere will be informal and collegial.

In addition to faculty on the CREEA|ACERE executive, CREEA invites keynote guests who will provide feedback on presentations and lead ‘career-craft’ workshops (tips on finding research topics, navigating the job market, getting papers published, managing the tenure process, etc. ).

Best Paper and Presentation

We are pleased to announce the Workshops have a best paper and presentation prize; the winner will receive a copy of Natural Resource Economics by Jon M. Conrad and Daniel Rondeau, published by Cambridge University Press.

Jon M. Conrad and Daniel Rondeau’s Natural Resource Economics provides a foundation for advanced research by presenting required mathematical methods, classic dynamic models for non-renewable and renewable resources, and exploring several contemporary problems. This textbook encourages students to pursue a deeper understanding of the analytics of resource problems and to deploy numerical methods when analytical results prove intractable. 

The combination of analysis, theory and applications will launch the next generation of resource economists, while serving as a useful reference for established researchers.

Find out more about Natural Resource Economics at the Cambridge University Press website,  and an extract is also available to read here.
