The Empirical IO / Microeconometrics Seminar was added to the Department's seminar series during the Winter/Spring Semester in 2020.

It focuses on research that combines methodological and empirical components, with topics in industrial organisation and applied microeconomics. It invites leading international scholars in these fields to present their recent work and creates a forum to promote and exchange ideas. Faculty and students from all fields are welcome to the seminar. Individual meetings scheduled during the day provide further opportunity to engage with the speaker.

The seminar is organised by Marleen MARRA and Junnan HE.
