The Event & Conference Division of Italian Exhibition Group (IEG) teamed up with the Bologna University to take to the Palacongressi di Rimini the 26th Conference of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE), a European scientific association that brings together some 1,200 experts, the majority European, who are active in environmental, climate and resource economics.
The Conference will be held from 22 to 25 June 2021. Approximately 800 academics, researchers, scientists, administrators and managers will meet in Rimini to discuss scientific, economic and even financial matters related to environmental issues. The agenda will include circular economy, low carbon transport systems, the decarbonisation of buildings, areas in which IEG and Rimini are already very active with the Ecomondo and Key Energy exhibitions. Among other issues to be addressed, for example, will be the role of climate risks in the appraisal of financial securities (green bonds).
One of the decisive factors in clinching the bid was collaboration with lecturers, Elettra Agliardi (Rimini Campus) and Anastasios Xepapadeas (University of Athens and Campus of Rimini ) representing the Faculty of Economics of the University of Bologna, a staunch promoter of the candidacy together with IEG. The added value of the city of Rimini and its vast accommodation options were also crucial points.
