Research Center for Environmental Economics
Forschungszentrum für Umweltökonomik (FZU)
The Research Center for Environmental Economics (Forschungszentrum für Umweltökonomie, FZU) brings together a dynamic group of economists who all work on solving pressing problems situated at intersection of the natural environment and the economy. We use theory, empirical, and experimental methods for better understanding the challenges of sustainable resource management and to provide relevant policy recommendations. Use this webpage as a platform to stay tuned in on our work or to explore the various projects we are involved in, many of them interdisciplinary.
The paper “Trust, but verify? Monitoring, inspection costs, and opportunism under limited observability” by Timo Goeschl and Johannes Jarke has been accepted for publication by the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization.
The Journal of Public Economics has recently published Florian Diekert’s paper ‘Threatening Thresholds? The effect of disastrous regime shifts on the non-cooperative use of environmental goods and services’.
Dr. Lisa Björk and Dr. Karlijn van den Broek have joined the Research Center as postdoctoral researchers. This team, combining environmental psychology (Karlijn) and environmental economics (Lisa), is developing the MULTITIP project on managing complex lake ecosystems, which has received seed funding from the Federal Ministry for Education and Research BMBF.
