The RES’s Professional Development Sessions aim to help economists and others (junior or senior) build their knowledge in particular topical areas.
The sessions are held by leading academics who have extensive experience in the session topics. Sessions focus on content to help improve teaching or research and are designed to deliver practical take-aways.
For 2021 we are running two sessions, with further sessions coming later in the year.
