Welcome to the website of the research group environmental economics of Hasselt University.

We are a group of enthusiastic researchers, aiming to inspire people towards sustainable change. Our research objective is to assess environmental economic choices by sound scientific analyses to support decision makers and to reduce uncertainty. More specifically, we focus on three themes: (1) economic and environmental analysis of cleantech, (2) climate change impacts, (3) valuation of ecosystem services. You can read more about this in the about us section.

We deliver publications of scientific articles and develop and carry out national and international projects. We do this both in collaboration with other research groups of Hasselt University and with other research groups from other universities, as well as with partners outside the university since there is a large interest in our research domain from industry and policy makers. We are always looking forward to new projects and collaborations with new partners.

We use this website as an instrument to connect with the larger industrial and scientific community. This website provides easy access to our results,shows links with related projects, and is considered as a tool to share our enthusiasm about environmental economics. Have a look at our blogs and check this website frequently for updates! Don’t forget to subscribe to our “newsletter” as well.
