20/10/2021 European Research Workshop in International Trade (ERWIT) 2021, Milan

Organizers: Carlo Altomonte, Giorgio Barba Navaretti, Beata Javorcik and Gianmarco Ottaviano
We are writing to invite you to submit a paper or to express your interest in attending CEPR's European Research Workshop in International Trade (ERWIT) 2021, to be held in Milan from 20 to 22 October 2021, organised in cooperation with Università degli Studi di Milano, Centro Studi Luca d'Agliano, the Baffi Carefin Centre of Bocconi University and the Horizon 2020 MICROPROD Project. Papers are invited on any trade-related issues.


ERWIT is an annual workshop that brings together international economists from across Europe and key researchers from outside the region. The workshop disseminates the findings of recent research on international trade, and presentations often involve exploratory rather than finished papers. It provides a unique opportunity to discuss trade-related research in a relaxed atmosphere. ERWIT 2020 took place virtually last year and the video recordings from ERWIT 2020 are available to watch on the following Youtube playlist.

The organisers hope that ERWIT 2021 can take place physically in Milan but will continue to monitor the situation. However, due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 and travel restrictions, the workshop may become a hybrid workshop or a completely virtual workshop depending on the situation closer to the time.

If the workshop can take place physically, it will run for 3 full days from Wednesday 20 October until Friday 22 October (with arrival on Tuesday 19 October). The afternoon of Friday 22 October will be dedicated to the MICROPROD Project Conference. CEPR and the local organisers will offer some funding for travel and accommodation, but we cannot guarantee funding for all participants. If you have alternative research travel funding at your disposal, we encourage you to indicate this on your reply form. This will help fund travel for participants who do not have other sources of funding, young researchers in particular. Where funding is provided for travel costs, this will be in accordance with the CEPR Travel Guidelines which will be circulated at a later date. We recommend that you hold off making any travel arrangements until further information has been given.
Kindly note that it will not be possible to accept all applications to attend the event. At this stage, we would thus like you to simply confirm your interest in attending the meeting and indicate whether or not you wish to present a paper. When selecting papers, some preference will be given to researchers who have not presented at ERWIT recently, although we still encourage everyone to apply.

Authors who are CEPR-affiliated or already have a CEPR online profile can upload their submission on https://portal.cepr.org/european-research-workshop-international-trade-erwit-2021. If you do not have a CEPR online profile, please create a new profile here https://portal.cepr.org/user/register and then click on the registration link above. The deadline for submissions is 18:00 (BST) on Sunday 2 May 2021.

If you have any difficulties registering for this meeting, please contact Mandy Chan, Senior Events Officer at [email protected].


28/10/2021 Fifth CEPR-EAERE Webinar on Climate Policy:The Transition to Net Zero by 2050, Online Seminar

Organizers: Carlo Carraro
Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to the Fifth CEPR/EAERE Webinar on Climate Policy: The Transition to Net Zero by 2050 taking place on October 28, 2021 from 5.00 to 6.30 pm CEST.

The number of countries announcing pledges to achieve net-zero emissions over the coming decades continues to grow. But the pledges by governments to date - even if fully achieved - fall well short of what is required to bring global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions to net zero by 2050 and give the world an even chance of limiting the global temperature rise to 1.5 °C. The International Energy Agency recently published a comprehensive study of how to transition to a net zero energy system by 2050 while ensuring stable and affordable energy supplies, providing universal energy access, and enabling robust economic growth. The study sets out a cost-effective and economically productive pathway, resulting in a clean, dynamic and resilient energy economy dominated by renewables like solar and wind instead of fossil fuels. It also examines key uncertainties, such as the roles of bioenergy, carbon capture and behavioural changes in reaching net zero. The webinar will be the occasion to discuss the content of IEA Report on NetZeroby2050 with Laura Cozzi, IEA Chief Energy Modeller, who led the writing team.

The next event after this one will be devoted to the implications of the IPCC WGI AR6 (November 2021).

This fifth event in the series will take place on Thursday, October 28, 2021 from 5.00 to 6.30 pm CEST.

There will be a presentation by Laura Cozzi (International Energy Agency), followed by a discussion by Carlo Carraro (Ca' Foscari University of Venice, CMCC and CEPR) and a Q&A session with the audience.

Organisers: Carlo Carraro (Università Ca' Foscari di Venezia and CEPR) Ottmar Edenhofer (Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research) Christian Gollier (Toulouse School of Economics and CEPR)

We look forward to seeing you at the conference on October 28th!

The Climate Policy Webinar Series (CPWS) is a webinar series featuring invited speakers in the area of climate policy. It is aimed at experts working in governments, international organizations, the private sector, academics and the media. The series launched in May 2021 and is now continuing this autumn. The seminars will run on a monthly basis and are organized jointly by the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) and the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE).
