Many young Hungarian economists have completed their PhDs at prestigious universities abroad. Few have become, however, an active member of the Hungarian scientific community. Institute of Economics of HAS organises the Summer workshop for bringing together young Hungarian researchers from all over the world.
We organize Summer Workshops annually since 2001. We invite final year PhD students and post-docs to present their new results. Topics cover all areas of economic research. Work in progress is also accepted for the workshop, if sufficient progress has been accomplished. Papers are presented either in English or in Hungarian; each presentation is commented by a discussant.
