Concern for the environment brought her to Gothenburg
Jessica Coria is one of the BECC PI's and Associate Professor within Environmental Economics at University of Gothenburg. She is also one of the research leaders at FRAM, Future Chemical Risk Assessment and Management Strategies.
"That an economist has the opportunity to work together with natural scentists provides new perspectives. One of the objectives of research is that of providing support to political leaders and policy-makers, and it's important to be able to explain both how the ecosystem works and what is economically feasible" says Jessica Coria in the interview.

What is FRAM?
FRAM is one of the six centers of UGOT Challenges. FRAM will work towards defining safe local, regional and global boundaries for chemical pollution that protect ecosystem services against the impact of the totality of chemical emissions and exposures. It will develop policy instruments for the fair sharing of the available emission space.
The center is run by a trans-interdisciplinary group of environmental scientists (ecotoxicology, ecology, environmental chemistry, life cycle assessment and systems analysis), environmental economists, and legal scholars in environmental and tax law.
