17th CEPR/JIE School on Applied Industrial Organisation  

17th CEPR/JIE School on Applied Industrial Organisation  

Online, 8-9 June 2021

Organisers:  Myrto Kalouptsidi (Harvard University, NBER and CEPR), Andrea Pozzi (EIEF and CEPR), and Nicolas Schutz (University of Mannheim and CEPR)

After last year’s cancellation, this year the CEPR/JIE Applied IO School will be organised as an online event as part of the CEPR Conference on Applied Industrial Organisation, 8-9 June 2021.
The goal of the school is to provide a forum for young European researchers in Applied IO to get exposure for and receive feedback on their work.  Based on the success of the format in the 2019 edition, the school will take place as a series of online quick “pitch presentations”.  
School Details:

Researchers accepted to the school will give very short (<10 min) online presentations of their work on 9 June  and participate in the Applied Industrial Organisation conference, which will also take place online.  Conference attendees will be informed of the goals of the school and be encouraged to attend the school participant session. Slides and the video of the presentation will be uploaded on the School’s website after the event and their availability will be advertised to the CEPR IO group at large.

Further details about the Applied IO Conference are included in its own Call for Papers available here: https://cepr.org/6754/cfp-mainconference.


Given its goals, only young researchers pursuing or having recently (within four years) received a PhD from a European economics program are eligible to apply.  Preference will be given to those students expecting to go on the academic job market in 2021-22, with additional (though lesser) preference given to other applicants according to their time since PhD completion. 

If you are or know of a pre- or post-doctoral researcher that may want to attend the school, please pass this invitation on to them. Applicants must submit a full draft of the paper that they will present.

School Submissions and Deadlines:

The deadline for submissions is Friday 12 February 2021 at 18:00 (GMT) and must include a research paper, a CV, and (for pre-doctoral researchers only) a short letter of support from their main advisor (max 1 page).  Letters of support can optionally be sent separately to [email protected]. Authors will be notified about whether their paper has been accepted in April 2021. 

Pre-and post-doctoral researchers that are eligible and wish to be considered for the school should indicate such with their submission by visiting the registration link https://portal.cepr.org/21st-ceprjie-conference-applied-industrial-organisation-and-17th-ceprjie-school-applied-industrial and logging into their CEPR account. If you do not currently have a CEPR account, please create a new profile here https://portal.cepr.org/user/register and then click on the registration link above. If you have any difficulties registering for this meeting, please contact Mandy Chan, Senior Events Officer at [email protected].
