EDEEM Doctoral Summer Workshop in Economics

Venice, 13-14 June 2019

We are pleased to invite you to the EDEEM Doctoral Summer Workshop in Economics, that will be held at The Department of Economics of Ca' Foscari University of Venice in the date of 13-14 June 2019. The European Doctorate in Economics - Erasmus Mundus (EDEEM) is a doctoral program in economics that gathers seven leading European institutions and is coordinated by Universitat Bielefeld, Germany. The workshop is intended to favour the exchange of ideas and networking among PhD students and junior researchers. We welcome submissions from any PhD student. Contributions in any area of theoretical and applied economics/econometrics will be considered. The purpose of the workshop is to foster meaningful dialogue and exchange of ideas, therefore there will be no parallel sessions. A member of the scientific committee will be assigned as discussant for each paper selected for an oral presentation. Moreover, a poster session is scheduled to stimulate open discussion also on early-stage research projects.

Keynote speaker:

Pierpaolo Battigalli

(Bocconi University of Milan)

Microeconomic theory, game theory and decision theory


The EDEEM Doctoral Summer Workshop is a two-day full time event.

  • The full program is available here.
