RES Annual Public Lecture
Established in 2001, our Annual Public Lecture provides an opportunity for school students to watch internationally-renowned economists present their research. Principally aimed at sixth form students, the APL has become an established part of the senior school calendar. The lecture is held twice a year, usually in late November or early December. This year will be at the University of Reading and the University of York.
This year's lecture will be delivered by Diane Coyle, Bennett Professor of Public Policy at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences. Her research focuses on the digital economy, particularly its measurement and the implications for competition and regulatory policy.
The public lecture in 2019 was delivered by Professor Tony Venables, BP Professor of Economics at the University of Oxford and Director of the Oxford Centre for the Analysis of Resource Rich Economies, where he talked about the economics that underpins city performance and discussed the policy challenges that cities face.
