Stefano Carattini, PhD in Economics at the UB, 2015 Heinz König Young Scholar Award of the ZEW

Stefano Carattini from Haute Ecole de Gestion de Genève (PhD in Economics 2015 at the University of Barcelona) is the 2015 recipient of the Heinz König Young Scholar Award of the Mannheim Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW). The jury’s decision indicates their recognition of the excellent research carried out by Carattini into the effect of a pay-per-bag tax on household waste on the produced amount of waste. By looking at the influence of such taxation on the behaviour of households and at the acceptability of such measures, Carattini has made an important contribution to the debate on the impact of fiscal policy on tackling environmental issues and promoting a sustainable economy.
