Symposium of Junior Researchers
Organised by research students for research students, the Symposium is supported by the Society and takes place on the final day of our Annual Conference.
Its aim is to bring together young economists at different stages of their research to encourage discussion and the sharing of knowledge. Submissions are welcome from PhD students and early career researchers in any field of economics. The symposium consists of a keynote lecture, parallel sessions and a poster session.
Every year a prize is awarded for the Best Paper presented at the Symposium of Junior Researchers. The 2019 Best Paper Prize was awarded to Dita Eckardt for her paper "Are Chemists Good Bankers? Returns to the Match between Training and Occupation".
