The UCy-AUEB joint webinar brings together "socially distanced" economists from Greece, Cyprus, and abroad; and exposes them to state-of-the-art research presented by experts in various fields of economics. The main goal is to exploit the current technological possibilities and make interesting work accessible to a wider audience, but also to preserve the intimacy of conventional seminars by allowing lively discussions and interactions.

This webinar is jointly hosted by the Research Seminar Series of the Department of Economics of the University of Cyprus, the Department of International and European Economic Studies and the Department of Economics of the Athens University of Economics and Business.To be included to our mailing list and receive invitations regarding future events, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
