Title: Research on the Design of Policies for Pollution Control Using Market
Mechanisms, and Data Gathering for Dissertation and Early Career Research on
the Pollution Control Aspects of Environmental Economics

URL: http://yosemite.epa.gov/ee/epa/eed.nsf/webpages/GrantSolicitations.html

Open Date: 10/17/2008 - Close Date: 12/05/2008

Summary: The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) National Center for
Environmental Economics (NCEE) is soliciting proposals for Federal assistance
for:

(1) Design of Policies for Pollution Control Using Market
Mechanisms. NCEE is interested in supporting research in the design of
policies for pollution control using market mechanisms, particularly when
multiple, hybrid, or adaptive policies are being used to control one or more
externalities.

(2) Data Gathering for Dissertation and Early Career
Research on the Pollution Control Aspects of Environmental Economics. NCEE has
long believed that there is a serious shortage of empirical data to determine
the economic benefits, costs and impacts of measures taken to control
pollutants. Although there are substantial academic incentives to write
theoretical dissertations and other papers, it is often difficult for graduate
students and investigators early in their career to find financial support for
empirically-based work in this area. NCEE believes that the provision of such
financial support may remedy some of this imbalance.
