Richard Blundell, RES President 2010-2013, introduces the RES Annual Conference
Andrew Chesher, RES President, discusses the successes of RES2016 and the future of economics
The RES distributes media briefings summarising new economic research findings presented at its annual conference and published in each issue of The Economic Journal. Conference Reports/Overviews produced by conference rapporteurs and leading economics journalists attending the conference are available here.
The 2016 Annual Conference took place on 21-23 March 2016 at the University of Sussex at Brighton.
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: https://sites.google.com/site/resjunsym/home.
The latest films from the Conference are available on the RES YouTube channel.
All PhD students who are members of the RES (regardless of their nationality) and are not in full time employment can apply to the RES for financial support to assist with conference attendance.
