PhD Seminars

PhD in Economics Students at the University of Barcelona organise a bimontly seminar. The purpose of this seminar is to provide a friendly academic environment in which PhD students can present their research proposals, advancements, field results, findings and benefit from peer criticism. The seminar is an opportunity to improve presentation skills, to get feedback from colleagues, to strengthen the PhD community, and to share our academic worries and questions in a constructive and warming meeting.

 

Unless otherwise noted, the seminars meet bimonthly on Fridays at 17:00h in the Espais de Recerca (ERE). Check the Room on the seminars calendar. Each session will consist of 1 presentation, around 20 min, followed by a 10 min Q&A.

 

We are always looking for presenters. If you are interested, please submit the preferred date to present, title of presentation and a short abstract (around 100 words) to Magdalena Domínguez, the seminar series organiser for the 2018/2019 academic year.
