After the great success of the first edition, Universidad Carlos III, DIW Berlin, EUI-Florence School of
Regulation, Technical University Berlin, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, University College London and
Université Libre de Bruxelles are happy to announce the second edition of the PhD Summer School on
“Economic Foundations for Energy and Climate Policies”.
The Summer School will be held on September 6-10, 2021 at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid
(Downtown campus) The plan is to organize the school in site but a mixed format could eventually be
considered in case the current pandemics situation does not improve as expected.
The main objective of the School is to provide PhD students in Economics with high-level academic
training on the micro-economic foundations of energy and climate policies. The School is also aimed at
supporting the development of a PhD-student network for students interested in the topic, and connect
them with top academics in the field.
