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.

Another important aim of ESSIM is to provide young researchers with the opportunity to meet and discuss their work with senior economists. 
If you wish to recommend a younger colleague who might benefit from presenting at or attending ESSIM, please forward this call for papers or email, Lydia Williams, Senior Events officer, CEPR at [email protected] with their curriculum vitae and/or paper.

Where CEPR does contribute to travel costs, this will be in accordance with the CEPR Travel Guidelines.
