Leggi la candidatura del Prof. Carlo Carraro (in lingua inglese):
“I have been working for the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists since its foundation in 1989. I organized its first Annual Conference in Venice in 1991 and the first World Congress of Environmental and Resource Economists again in Venice in 1998. I have been a member of the EAERE Board from 2002 to 2003 and I organized two Summer Schools in 2000 and in 2002. I know EAERE and many of its members very well and I realize the potential of the Association in promoting environmental and resource economics as a major research field in economics, certainly increasingly important in all economic debates.
Being the editor of the Review of Environmental Economics and Policy (REEP), I am also a member of the Board of AERE, the US-based Association of Environmental and Resource Economists. This membership is one of the reasons why I accepted to be a candidate for President of EAERE: I believe that EAERE can further strengthen its impact by developing joint initiatives with AERE, thus increasing its visibility among US universities, institutions and journals. As a President of EAERE I would be able to promote new cooperation, events and publications that will help EAERE members to enhance their academic reputation and their international network.
I have been the President of the University of Venice for five years. Now I can contribute to EAERE my managerial experience in addition to my knowledge of the academic world and my involvement in many research projects. This will help both to effectively manage the EAERE budget and to raise funds to give young European talents, as well as colleagues from developing countries, the possibility to attend our meetings and schools. I am also in the board of several international organizations and academic institutions. This gives me the chance to promote EAERE as the focal point of research on climate, the environment and natural resources, thus increasing its relevance in the EU policy process. What all of us do cannot be confined to universities and research centers: we must enhance our impact on policy processes in Europe.
As a President, I would work to strengthen EAERE, its job market, the training opportunities that it provides, and its visibility in the busines s world. I would also work to extend collaboration also to Asian, Latin America n and African Associations, to create a wider community of researchers whose interactions can further improve our understanding of crucial environmental and natural resource is sues. Finally, I would work to improve all existing initiatives, starting from the Annual conference and the Summer School, and to develop new ones to give EAERE members better tools to share knowledge and to raise funds for their research.”
