Kick-off Conference:

Dialogue on the Economics of Climate Change (2. phase)

 

12 - 14 June 2019 in Berlin

 

Welcome to the Kick-off Conference of the Dialogue on the Economics of Climate Change, the project accompanying the BMBF's funding line Economics of Climate Change (2. phase). The aim of the Kick-off Conference is to initiate a lively dialogue by giving the 29 projects of the funding line the opportunity to get to know each other, exchange ideas, define network activities and discuss the challenges of climate economics research.

The event starts with an icebreaker on 12 June at 7 pm (Tagesspiegel Rotunde). On 13 and 14 June, panel discussions, workshops and poster sessions will take place at the dbb forum berlin before the kick-off conference ends with a farewell lunch on 14 June.
