On the 18th-20th June, CERE celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the Ulvön Conference on Environmental Economics. Due to the special occasion and the consistent popularity of the conference, accommodation and places for the conference were filled up fast. The conference started back in 1993 when CERE's research director Bengt Kriström was at the Stockholm School of Economics and invited Paul Portney to speak at Ulvön.
Several members from CERE were there to present their research. One CERE member; Erik Brockwell, was awarded "Best Poster Award" for his presentation named "The Signaling Effect of Environmental and Health-Based Taxation Policy: An Empirical Analysis".
