Welcome to the Institute for Ecological EconomicsRSS

The In­sti­tute is a lead­ing in­sti­tu­tion for eco­lo­gical eco­nomic re­search, teach­ing, learn­ing, know­ledge ex­change, and com­munity en­gage­ment. Over 30 re­search­ers, a sec­ret­ary, a re­search co­ordin­ator, and a gradu­ate pro­gram co­ordin­ator make up the In­sti­tute’s staff.

Re­search is gen­er­ally grouped into five re­search areas: Sus­tain­able Work, Mac­roe­co­nom­ics & En­vir­on­ment, Cli­mate Eco­nom­ics and Fin­ance, Sus­tain­able Re­source Use, and Edu­ca­tion for Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment.  

The In­sti­tute was foun­ded in July of 2014. Until then its activ­it­ies were part of the En­vir­on­ment Group at the In­sti­tute for the En­vir­on­ment and Re­gional Devel­op­ment. Its pre­de­cessor or­gan­iz­a­tion was the In­sti­tute for En­vir­on­ment and Economy, which was foun­ded in 1991 and led by Pro­fessor Uwe Schubert.
