The First edition of the UB School of Economics Young Researchers Meeting highlighted the excellence of the research done in the field of Economics at the UB
The UB School of Economics hosted the first “UB School of Economics Young Researchers Meeting” on September 22, 2022. The event represented an outstanding opportunity to showcase to the UB research community the work done at the UB School of Economics by our young researchers who joined the Faculty of Economics and Business during the last years. It also provided a good opportunity to establish scientific discussion and networking between the different generations of researchers at the UB Faculty of Economics and Business.
Our Vice Dean of Research and Doctoral programmes, Antonio Di Paolo, made a welcome speech titled “The last 10 years of the UB School of Economics”, to explain the progress made by the Faculty and the School, emphasizing the benefits and positive impacts of the School on the research done in the field of Economics at the University of Barcelona.
Subsequently, 19 young researchers presented some of their research work highlighting the diversity, excellence, and promising future of the research carried out at the UB School of Economics.
In addition, the program included a keynote speech entitled “The Design of University Entrance Exams and its Implications for Gender Gaps” by Caterina Calsamiglia, researcher at ICREA, IPEG, and IZA, which was based on the content of one of her recent papers coauthored with another researcher at the UB School of Economics, Andreu Arenas.
