We are writing to invite you to submit a paper or to express your interest in attending CEPR's 2020 European Research Workshop in International Trade (ERWIT), to be held in Milan from 3 to 5 June 2020, organised in cooperation with Università degli Studi di Milano, Centro Studi Luca d'Agliano, the Baffi Carefin Centre of Bocconi University and the Horizon 2020 MICROPROD Project. Papers are invited on any trade-related issues.

ERWIT is an annual workshop that brings together international economists from across Europe and key researchers from outside the region. The workshop disseminates the findings of recent research on international trade, and presentations often involve exploratory rather than finished papers. It provides a unique opportunity to discuss trade-related research in a relaxed atmosphere.

The workshop will run for 3 full days from the early morning on Wednesday 21 October until the late afternoon on Friday 23 October. The afternoon of Friday 5 June will be dedicated to the MICROPROD Project Conference. CEPR and the local organisers will offer some funding for travel and accommodation, but we cannot guarantee funding for all participants. If you have alternative research travel funding at your disposal, we encourage you to indicate this on your reply form. This will help fund travel for participants who do not have other sources of funding, young researchers in particular. Where funding is provided for travel costs, this will be in accordance with the CEPR Travel Guidelines.

Kindly note that it will not be possible to accept all applications to attend the event. At this stage, we would thus like you to simply confirm your interest in attending the meeting and indicate whether or not you wish to present a paper. When selecting papers, some preference will be given to researchers who have not presented at ERWIT recently, although we still encourage everyone to apply.

Authors who are CEPR members can upload their submission on If you do not currently have a CEPR profile, please create a new profile here and then click on the registration link above. The deadline for submissions is 18:00 (BST), Friday 13 December 2019.

If you have any difficulties registering for this meeting, please contact Mandy Chan, Senior Events Officer at [email protected] or +44 20 7183 8804.
