This event is targeted at University Economics Departments and other recruiters wishing to recruit PhD students, and at PhD students seeking jobs in the UK and Europe. As well as two days of student presentations and poster sessions, participating institutions have the opportunity to arrange individual appointments with students. Students should note that attending the meetings does not guarantee them interviews: most institutions arrange these in advance. This annual meeting has grown to be a successful event, well supported by both students and recruiters.
