Research in International Economics and Finance

The Research in International Economics and Finance (RIEF) network was created in 2004 in order to strengthen scientific cooperation and contacts between European research centers working on international economics (either trade, international macro, or international finance). The network organizes a yearly doctoral meeting which offers the opportunity for a limited number of PhD candidates or young PhDs to present their papers before an audience of senior researchers in the field. A prize of 500 euros is awarded to the best paper presented.

Next Event:
ifo Center for International Economics, CESifo group, Munich, June 15-16, 2018
Call for papers is now out, more info here!
