Advanced Environmental, Energy and Ressource Economics (WS 2014/2015)


Welcome to the Chair of Economic Policy 3

The Chair of Economic Policy III is involved in the research and teaching of general economic and financial policy. In addition, we focus on problems of regional, sectoral and structural policy in the European Union as well as the environmental and resource economics. Against this background, we carry out numerous applied research projects in cooperation with various Directorate-Generals of the European Union, economic and environmental ministries. In our teaching, we aim to make students aware of market and policy failures and show them how to identify instruments and institutional structures in which the associated inefficiencies can be overcome.
