The Centre for Environmental and Energy Economics and Management is holding a colloquium for PhD students researching Energy and / or Environmental Economics and Management on Friday 6 May.

The purpose of the colloquium is to allow PhD students from leading Universities to come together and to gauge the standard of their PhD research. It will also provide attendees with practice in presenting their research whilst benefitting from comments from staff and students. PhD students will furthermore enjoy the chance to share experiences with other doctoral researchers and staff will be interested to find out what sort of issues are the subject of PhD research elsewhere.
