The University of Essex is hosting the 2nd Essex PhD Conference in Applied Economics and will be held in person at the Colchester Campus of the University of Essex, and is organised by the PhD students at the Economics Department, the Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER) and supported by the South East Network for Social Sciences (SeNSS). The aim of the conference is to provide PhD students in Applied Economics with the opportunity to come together and connect with other PhD students from institutions across the globe in a supportive environment in which they can present their work and ideas to their peers and receive valuable feedback. We are very pleased to be hosting Christian Dustmann (UCL) and Thomas Cornelissen (University of Essex) as keynote speakers.
