The objective is to present state-of-the-art empirical and theoretical research on household financial behaviour and on how it is influenced by other choices, government policies, and the overall economic environment. In addition to the two-day conference taking place on 19-20 September, a CEPR Research-Policy-Practice event will be organised by the local organisers and will take place on 18 September 2024.

Students must apply online stating that they are a PhD student and supply their CV. Top submissions, written exclusively by students, will be included in the regular conference programme and in the candidates for the best student paper prize, awarded by the CEPR Research and Policy Network on Household Finance. Past awardees have launched highly promising careers, including assistant professor positions in top academic institutions globally.
