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.
Another important aim of ERWIT is to provide young researchers with the opportunity to meet and discuss their work with senior economists.
EFIGE is a Collaborative Research Project funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union, which looks at the international competitiveness of European firms on the basis of a new publicly-available firm-level survey carried out in parallel in seven EU countries linked to existing firm-level data sources. It organises an annual Scientific Workshop and Policy Conference that is held in combination with ERWIT.
