The Royal Economic Society is offering financial support for the top five PhD students submitting papers for the Conference on Economic Measurement in 2019.

The Economic Statistics Centre of Excellence (ESCoE) will hold its annual conference, organised in partnership with the Office for National Statistics, at King’s College London on 8-10 May 2019.

We are offering £200 towards travel and accommodation to each of the top five PhD paper submissions.

ESCoE is inviting papers on all aspects of measurement and use of economic statistics, including the productivity puzzle, the digital economy, National Accounts and ‘Beyond GDP’.

To enter the competition please submit a paper to the conference and tick the box to indicate you want to be considered for the competition. Papers must be submitted by 7 January 2019 and will be evaluated by the Conference Scientific Committee.
