The Economics and Environmental Policy Research Network (EEPRN), hosted by uOttawa’s Institute of the Environment in partnership with Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and the Smart Prosperity Institute (SPI), works to fund and disseminate cutting edge research on economics and environmental policy priorities for Canada, from our network of over 100 academics across Canada, and internationally.

 The EEPRN funds academic research projects in the following research areas.

  • Policies for a Low Carbon Economy;
  • Innovation & Competitiveness;
