Workshops and seminars


The Institute for Economic Research (IRE) organizes monthly workshops on selected topics in the field of applied economics in order to discuss on-going or recent research with scholars, professionals, and institutional stakeholders.

The final goal is fostering a constructive debate concerning recent contributions from the scientific debate, and promoting dialogue between professionals and academics working in neighbouring fields.

The workshops welcome contributions from colleagues working in other Universities and institutions, and pursue an inter- and transdisciplinary approach.


The workshops are organised as physical or virtual (Teams or Zoom) meetings and usually take place on a monthly basis from October to May.


The workshops are organised with a presentation and a discussion, each lasting around 30 minutes.

Target audience

Researchers and professionals working in public or private research institutions, private companies, and public administration. Each workshop hosts a presenter and a discussant for the presentation session, and an open debate with the audience in the following discussion session. We aim at promoting cooperation and a constructive exchange of ideas among all participants.
