Field Day Applied Economics - Mark III

Objective

This summer we will have another instalment of our “Field Day in Applied Economics”

The idea is to have a sequence of very short presentations (max 20min + discussion) where you present very early stage ideas for empirical projects. These are supposed to be at a stage where they are not yet ready to be presented at one of the internal workshops in the department. For example you could present a novel data set/natural experiment/... in some detail and potential questions that it could help to answer.

We want to

  • encourage promising projects,
  • discourage not so promising projects (before you sink too much effort into them), – get feedback and potentially develop new research ideas, and – allow students to learn about each others interests.
