PEARL Seminar

PEARL is a network of researchers and research institutions that operate in the field of applied public economics and public finance. The main focus of the network is on the regional level of government, which of course includes studying the relationships with local, state, federal (or supra-national) institutions. The idea of PEARL is to gather various kinds of expertise both from different countries (implying different objectives, economic and institutional constraints) and from different fields of economic analysis (econometrics, public finance and public choice, local and regional economics, macroeconomics).

CREM – Seminars and conferences in Rennes

Invited fellows

The Center offers a research environment where international scholars can isolate themselves from the administrative and teaching activities of their home institutions to concentrate solely on their research, benefitting from all the facilities provided by the University of Rennes and of the high quality of life provided by beautiful Rennes and mesmerizing Brittany. In this respect, the Condorcet Center offers both funded and unfunded positions as Invited Fellow/Professeur Invité. Funded positions require a minimum stay of one week and involve some teaching activities. The honorarium varies with seniority and length of stay, according to French legislation. Unfunded positions offer research facilities and require only the participation to the research activities of the Center (seminars, workshops etc.). Their availability and length of stay is just limited by the accessibility of the research facilities. Should you be interested in an unfunded position please contact us.
