CEPR Advanced Forum in Financial Economics - CAFFE Seminars

The objective of the CEPR Advanced Forum for Financial Economics (CAFFE) is to make cutting-edge finance research available to researchers based in Europe and around the world. The seminar starts just after lunch at 2PM CET (1PM London time), so have your caffè during CAFFE!

CAFFE Seminars Website

The seminars are organized by Laurent Calvet, Kim Peijnenburg, and Raman Uppal from EDHEC Business School and CEPR. The seminar is open to all contributors but special emphasis is placed on European-based researchers working on novel issues such as the financial implications of Covid-19.

There is one seminar on the second Tuesday of each month covering all topics in Financial Economics.

Each seminar runs for 75 minutes, with 30 minutes allocated to the speaker, 30 minutes to the discussant, and 15 minutes for questions from the audience. The discussant spends half of the 30 minutes allocated to them to discuss the paper and the other half to provide suggestions for future research.
