The Team for Integrated Energy and Environmental Research Studies (TIERS) officially launches. The fall semester of 2013 sees the official launch of TIERS, a new research group based within RIEM that has a dedicated focus towards energy and environmental topics. The aim of TIERS is to be a focal point for energy and environmental related research, initially within RIEM but in time across the whole of SWUFE, cutting across departments and establishing itself as a regional center for excellence. As part of the launch activities, during the summer TIERS jointly hosted its first workshop in collaboration with the Institute of Policy and Management of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (For news briefing please visit http://riem.swufe.edu.cn/en/events/2083.html). In the first week of September, TIERS also hosted a visit from Prof. Jim Smith of Cox Southern Methodist University (USA), who is currently an Editor of The Energy Journal. Graduate students have already been successful in obtaining international scholarships, and faculty members continue to publish in leading international journals.
