The cancellation of conferences has left several young scholars without an opportunity to present their research. The aim of this workshop is to provide PhD candidates with feedback and support. All timings are Central European Time (CET). Presentations will be 30 minutes, followed by a 10 minute discussion and 10 minutes for general Q&A.

Everyone interested in economic research is invited to join the workshop!
