ESSIM is an annual meeting that brings together about 75 economists from across Europe and key researchers from outside the region. It provides a unique opportunity for macroeconomists from different research institutions and countries to discuss research in a relaxed atmosphere and to develop long-term collaborative relationships.

Participation at ESSIM

CEPR cannot accept all applications to attend ESSIM as demand always exceeds the space available. We try to operate the unavoidable rationing as fairly as possible, and in so doing, we assume that those who participate will at least attend the plenary talks and the talks of at least one programme area.
