2019 WEHIA

PhD School

Aims and Scope

Following WEHIA’s recent successful tradition, the 2019 conference will be preceded by a two-days PhD School, which will be held at University College London on June 21-22, just before the beginning of the main conference. The School is aimed at PhD students and young researchers.

The theme of the 2019 School will be data-driven approaches to economic analysis, with particular focus on technology-related emerging risks, urban economics, and experimental economics.
