Barcelona GSE Summer Forum

The Summer Forum is a series of independent workshops that cover the main fields of Economics. With each edition, the Barcelona GSE Summer Forum has grown in participation by top researchers, selectivity of papers chosen for each workshop, and reputation as the summer meeting point in Europe for colleagues with common research interests.

The next edition of the Summer Forum will take place in June 2019 at UPF-BSM (Balmes) in Barcelona.
