This Summer School is designed for Economics PhD students with an interest in Urban topics. In addition to those students specialized in Urban Economics, we encourage the participation from PhD students in Labour, Development, Public, Trade and other applied fields who want to improve their knowledge in the field.

The objective of the school is twofold: to offer an intensive training program for interested PhD students, and to provide them with the opportunity to present and discuss their own ongoing research with leading researchers in the field in a relaxed and open atmosphere.

The lectures will be held during the mornings and the PhD students’ presentations will take place in the afternoon.

We invite applications to attend from PhD students in Economics who are in the second year and beyond. Places in the school are limited.
