Our department develops methods for the analysis of chemicals. We follow their environmental fate, test their toxicity, advise authorities, train other laboratories in measuring them, and teach young people in this highly specialized work.
Our department investigates whether and how economic growth and environmental sustainability can be reconciled. Applying a wide range of tools to advance at empirical, methodological and theoretical levels, our economists and econometrists also generate specific policy advice.
The Department of Environmental Policy Analysis is a vibrant international group of about thirty researchers, faculty members and PhD students who share an interest in analysing policies, institutions and governance mechanisms in the field of sustainable development.
