In the Environmental Economics Department, we focus on three themes. First, we are specialized in market and non-market valuation approaches such as choice experiments, meta-analysis and benefits transfer. Second, we develop economic models to support complex decision-making by simulating future economic developments and predicting the economic consequences of a given policy (e.g. concerning climate change, water quality). Economic policy instruments are designed and evaluated to change behaviour and decision-making towards the environment.
More details on the research themes can be found under the Research Themes.
