Our seminar series
Following the excellent ‘Economics of a Pandemic’ series, I was pleasantly surprised to be offered yet another series of lectures with outstanding insight. The quality of the speakers was first rate; all top researchers from different corners of the world, bringing new perspective. I particularly valued the quality of the data presented, which led to unavoidable and indisputable conclusions. It was positive and gratifying to see that progress is being made to reduce inequalities, but we must all acknowledge that there is much still to be done’.

The OUBEP seminar series is where we share our latest research on highly relevant topics with the Economics academic community and business leaders for both discussion, and to inform decision-making.
Each lecture takes place online. We begin with a presentation that lasts approximately 45-50 minutes. The lecture is followed by a 10-15 minute Q&A and discussion session.
Depending on the nature of the seminar, we may also invite an industry speaker to take part in a panel discussion and share their real-life experience in the context of the seminar topic and our research.

Despite the cancellation of the summer programme this year, we have been able to create new formats to allow for this conversation to take place, on relevant topics and informed by frontier research.
