heal.abstract This paper deals with the ""era of economics"" in European environmental policy. Towards this direction, certain legislative requirements and strategies that promote economic issues within the EU are provided, through some illustrative examples. From the analysis, it becomes evident that there is a growing attempt in the EU to more systematically incorporate economic information in private and especially public decision-making. However, original valuation studies are both costly and time-consuming. Thus, in some cases, especially when there is limited experience, the Benefit Transfer technique may be adopted. Bearing in mind these remarks, this paper introduces an interactive benefit transfer tool, which is currently being developed. This tool, called GEVAD, will facilitate the valuation of environmental impacts in monetary terms, supporting decision-making processes in various levels within Europe. en
