Objectives

Experiments have become an established methodology of investigation in the social sciences, with highly relevant applications to environmental and natural resource economics.

The aim of the course is twofold. First, the course intends to introduce young scholars from environmental economics to the methodology of laboratory, field and online experiments through dedicated lectures from experts in the field. Second, it strives to present and discuss specific applications to environmental topics, which are at the frontier of the current research. Students will have the possibility to elaborate and present a research project developed during the week.
