Environmental, energy, and ecological problems have grown faster than their solutions. Economists have an important role to play to address these issues by using the latest science, rigorous methods and innovative policy solutions. Grenoble Ecole de Management participes at the SWEEEP webinar series with Sébastien Houde, Associate Professor. It aims to convene the academic community to contribute to the scientific, economic, and policy discourses on important environmental and energy issues.
The webinar takes place on Wednesdays at 15:00 CEST/CET and has a duration of 60 minutes, with questions at the end. In order to attend the webinar, registration is mandatory. Please use the links in the program to access the registration form.

The Centre for Energy Policy and Economics (CEPE) was established in 1999 to complement the natural science and technical-oriented disciplines at ETH Zurich, by contributing to research and teaching in energy policy and economics. Through rigorous application of modern empirical methods, the goal of CEPE is to make critical contributions to the design and evaluation of energy and climate policy instruments.
