This module provides an opportunity to MRes students to be exposed to state-of-the art research in the field of Economics, by attending weekly departmental seminars and workshops that are run throughout semester 2. Departmental seminars are usually offered once per week on Wednesday afternoon, by leading academics from other UK and International Institutions. Departmental workshops are typically offered by members of the Economics Department and take place on Tuesday afternoon. Papers presented range across all different fields of Economics (Micro, Macro, Applied Economics and Econometrics) and involve papers at different stages of their production, from draft to completion. Students will be coached in all the relevant aspects of the organization and attendance to the seminars. Students might also be encouraged, under the guidance of the module lead, to participate to open virtual events organised by other leading institutions.
