Each year, EAERE organises its Annual Conference, an invaluable opportunity for meeting, exchanging and debating current topics in environmental and resource economics. With approximately 600 individual participants attending from all over the world, international researchers, scholars, economists and students convene to the EAERE Annual Conferences in the spirit of economic discovery, research, analysis and collaboration. Conferences are held in European countries and unite European participants together with their national and international neighbours. The activities of the Annual Conference include keynote speeches and policy panels in plenary sessions, papers presented in parallel sessions, and the EAERE General Assembly of the members. Economists, including those who are not currently members of the EAERE, are invited to submit papers for presentation at the Annual Conferences. It is hoped that papers presented represent a broad spectrum of environmental and resource economics. Every four years since 1998, EAERE's Annual Conference is held within the World Congress of Environmental and Resource Economists, an important international event organised together with AERE.
