RES Inaugural Symposium of Junior Researchers Thurs 2 April


The Royal Economic Society is pleased to announce its Inaugural Symposium of Junior Researchers, which will take place on Thursday 2nd April 2015 at the University of Manchester, UK.

With the support of the Royal Economic Society in its 125th Anniversary year of promoting economics, this event is organised by research students for research students. Its objectives are to bring together students at all stages of their theses and to foster discussion and dissemination of doctoral research in all areas of economics. The Symposium takes place concurrently with the Annual Conference of the RES so as to maximise networking opportunities. It is our hope to bring together a larger group of researchers than only the presenters, and attendance (up to full capacity) is encouraged for all who are interested, even those who do not present.

The format includes presentation sessions and a poster session, in which students will have the opportunity to discuss and disseminate their research. Each presenter will be a discussant for another paper in the same presentation session. There is an award for the best paper presented at the workshop. The Plenary lecture will be given by Sir Richard Blundell.
