Academy on Economic Growth and Governance of Natural Resources

ENR co-organizes the Moscow Summer Academy on Economic Growth and Governance of Natural Resources 2015. We invite a new generation of young scientists – undergraduate and graduate students, as well as postdoctoral scholars to discuss the challenges of natural resources management and economic growth, and learn to apply contemporary methods to tackle those challenges.
