Economists Grabbing Coffee (#EconBrew)
This is a continuously growing list of PhD holding economists (and economics-adjacent folks) in academic (and academic-adjacent) positions who would be happy to grab coffee with colleagues visiting their city. Much in the spirit of #EconTwitter, the list is intended to open doors for informal, relaxed communication, peer-to-peer research conversations, and maybe even co-authorships down the line.
Started mid-March 2020, EconBrew already has 100+(!!) economists from 24 US states and an additional 23 countries worldwide.
If you would like to be listed here as someone happy to grab coffee with a colleague, please sign up here: https://forms.gle/qsVHcAGGESJn1zeb7
If you end up meeting someone through this list, I encourage you to tag your tweets with the hashtag #EconBrew. I'd love to see all the professional connections made thanks to the list! (Feel free to also tag or DM me the update.)
