About the Workshop

The School of Economics and Finance of Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) is hosting the 6th annual workshop for PhD & Postdoctoral students. The workshop is organised by QMUL PhD students and aims to bring together researchers from all areas of Economics and Finance to create a stimulating environment for participants to discuss pressing issues in their fields and receive valuable feedback on their work. 

The two-day workshop will consist of a mix of parallel and plenary sessions covering the following broad research fields: Macroeconomics, Econometrics, Finance, Theoretical Microeconomics, and Applied Microeconomics. This year, the conference features keynote speeches by Paul de Grauwe (LSE) and Gabriel Ulyssea (UCL).

Presentations will be followed by a discussion led by a PhD student. Authors of selected papers might be asked to also discuss a paper related to their field of research. The scientific committee, consisting of QMUL PhD students and faculty members, will select two papers that will be awarded the Best Paper Acknowledgement. These papers will be presented in plenary sessions and discussed by an expert faculty member in the field.

  • Paul De Grauwe – John Paulson Chair in European Political Economy, European Institute, LSE
