RES Symposium of Junior Researchers

As part of its efforts to support a strong UK PhD community, the RES has trialled a Symposium of Junior Researchers to take place on the day after the RES Annual Conference in 2015 and 2016. If this continues to be well supported it is likely that this will continue in future years.

This event is organised by research students for research students and early career researchers, sponsored by the Royal Economic Society. Its objective is to bring together students at all stages of their theses and foster discussion and dissemination of doctoral research in all areas of economics. Further information about the Symposium is available on their web page:
