Explore Econ 2020 at UCL

Undergraduate conference open to students and staff from any university. Wednesday February 26th 2020 from 1:30pm to 8pm

The UCL Centre for Teaching and Learning Economics (CTaLE) is delighted to invite you to Explore Econ 2020. The topics are interesting, ranging from 'Using game theory to keep a choir on pitch' to 'How to incentivise derivatives traders' to 'Why do Londoners pay more to live in crime ridden areas?'. This annual undergraduate conference has been running since 2015. Our students, from first to final year, present their independent research to peers and staff in paper and poster format. We have a judging panel of professional economists who award prizes. The formal conference ends with a fast-paced Ignite session where we match a student with an academic and they present on the theme #whateconomistsreallydo. This year that session is themed around 'Use (and misuse) of data'. The staff involved are Prof Morten Ravn, Dr Michela Tincani and George Stoye from the IFS.

The Royal Economic Society
