Workshop’s aim and Call for papers

The ICP workshops series is organised semi-annually under the auspices of the European PhD Network on International Climate Policy (ICP). It aims to offer doctoral candidates the opportunity to present their research ideas and results, receive feedback, and exchange information and assistance in an informal setting. PhD students from all disciplines working on topics relevant to climate policy and environmental economics are invited to submit applications. Participation is free of charge, but participants are expected to cover their travel and accommodation expenses. We seek to bring together 30-40 PhD students who present and discuss their work. Each presentation will be followed by comments of a fellow PhD candidate and a discussion of the paper. There will be a small number of places available for participants who do not present their own research but nevertheless serve as discussant for a paper in a field of their expertise.

Workshop schedule and Keynote Speakers:

We are happy to welcome Dr. Sabine Augustin, Director of Corporate Affairs from E.ON Global Commodoties SE, Dr. Frank Gagelmann from Umweltbundesamt – Deutsche Emissionshandelsstelle and Prof. Dr. Sylvie Geisendorf, Director of SustBusy: Research Center of Sustainability.
