YEP Workshop: Applied Economics

The Cluster ECONtribute invites to the first ECONtribute Young Economist Workshop in Applied Economics. The idea is to promote exchange between junior researchers in Bonn and Cologne. The (full day) workshop will take place on October 1, 2021 in Cologne or virtual.

The workshop is intended for young researchers (PhD, Post-Doc, Junior-Prof) in the fields of applied economics from Bonn and Cologne. It is also possible to attend the workshop without presenting.

The workshop will consist of

  • Full papers or ongoing project presentations (25 min, 5 min discussant and 5 min questions from the audience)
  • (Early) ideas presentations (10 min + 5 min discussion)
  • Social gathering (at own expenses).

With the uncertainty of COVID-19, we cannot yet commit to the conference modality, but we are committed to running an online Congress regardless of the situation and remain hopeful that the situation will evolve favorably for an in-person event.

Submission and registration:
