The RIEF network organises a yearly doctoral meeting which offers the opportunity for a limited number of PhD candidates or young PhDs to present their research. Each selected paper will be discussed by an active senior researcher in the field. Previous meetings took place in prestigious Universities such as Paris School of Economics, Aix-Marseille, Munich, Lille, the European University Institute in Florence, Zürich, Paris I, Bocconi, Nice, Kiel or Barcelona.

Keynote lectures will be given by Paola Conconi (University of Oxford and CEPR) and Carolina Villegas-Sanchez (ESADE Business School and CEPR).

The conference will take place in person.

PhDs candidates and young PhDs (still on the job market) should submit their papers (exclusively in English) in electronic format (pdf) to:
