We are excited about hosting the second Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis: European Conference 2021 (SBCAEC2021). The SBCAEC2021 will be held at the premises of the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden, in mid-October 2021.
The Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis (SBCA) is an international group of practitioners, academics and others who are working to improve the theory and application of the tools of benefit cost analysis (BCA). We welcome submissions that support the enhanced use of such analysis to promote evidence-based decision making. BCA is defined broadly, including cost analysis, cost effectiveness analysis, risk-benefit analysis, applied welfare economics, damage assessment and other methods. The conference welcomes submissions on topics closely related to BCA such as non-market valuation, discounting, equity, social policy, regulation, implementation of BCA, etc., and applications to any public policy area, such as environment, transport, health, energy, etc., are encouraged.
We believe that the European conference will offer an important opportunity to share ideas and new information. Due to the current situation, at this point we cannot finally decide on the format of the conference (face-to-face/digital/hybrid). The decision will be made in due time and be communicated via website and newsletter.
We hope you will be joining us for a stimulating conference and look forward to seeing you in Stockholm in 2021!
With our warm welcome,
Johanna Jussila Hammes and Camilla Byström
