New CEPR Vice President

Monday, February 10, 2020

We are very pleased to announce that Philippe Martin is joining CEPR's leadership team as Vice President, Europe. A regional representative office was created in Brussels in 2019, and further representations are being developed in several European locations including Frankfurt and Berlin with the purpose of providing a regional platform for CEPR Researchers and to deepen our ties into the local academic and policy communities. A more substantial operation in Paris is likely to start operations in the coming months.

CEPR is delighted to welcome Philippe Martin on board in this new capacity.
