The in-person hubs bring together conference delegates to discuss different topics and sessions and provide opportunity for face-to-face time with seniors, colleagues and peers. Hubs will be held at University of Reading (UK), University of Manchester (UK) and Ashoka University (India). Find out more about the hubs here.
The Royal Economic Society has a key objective for the hubs; to assist progression for PhD students and early career researchers, and we hope these hub events will offer some great opportunities. To aid students, the RES is offering financial support.
Each hub event will consist of a live keynote address or panel and some key virtual conference content will be available to view at each hub, meaning you can watch then discuss conference content in-person with fellow delegates.
Hub events are included within the Conference ticket price, delegates are welcome to attend any hub that suits them.
Below is some more information about attending the hubs.
