The Social Sciences Area of the Gran Sasso Science Institute in L’Aquila (GSSI) will host an Early Career Workshop on the Environment, Climate Change and Disasters - Socio-economic Impacts and Adaptation on June 5-6 in L'Aquila, Italy.

The workshop provides a precious opportunity to young scholars to facilitate the dissemination and exchange of cutting-edge scientific research on different topics of applied environmental economics involving various socio-economic dimensions such as for firms, the labor market, as well as the health and development of human capital. In addition to serving as a platform for scientific dissemination, the workshop aims to enhance the connections between European and non-European universities, as well as between universities and private research institutions. 

The event brings together a small number of young researchers and doctoral students, giving them the opportunity to present their preliminary work to a highly selected and internationally diverse audience. It will feature the participation of three distinguished scholars who will deliver keynote lectures and a selected scientific committee that will attend the workshop, providing valuable advice.
