The RES Annual Public Lecture 2021 will be held on Thursday 6 May, 1pm – 2.30pm and the event will be online only.  

The virtual event, chaired by Carol Propper, RES President, will open with a welcome from Carol followed by an introduction to Professor Diane Coyle followed by a Q&A session.

Why digital is so disruptive 

The Internet can be traced back to 1969, the World Wide Web to 1990, and iPhone to 2007 - yet it is only in the past few years that “digital disruption” has become a big theme in business. In this lecture, Diane Coyle, Bennett Professor of Public Policy at the University of Cambridge, and an expert on the digital economy, will explore why digital technology is rewiring the economy - especially now so much activity has been driven online -  what economists are learning about its consequences, and how economic policies need to change. 

If you are interested in joining with a group of your students, we encourage you to book early! We anticipate this to be a very popular event, so we are giving you the opportunity to book up to 10 seats. Please register using our Eventbrite page.
