How to attend


The Italian Economic Society is organizing its 65th Annual Scientific Meeting (RSA) at the University of Urbino from the 24th to the 26th of October. This year, YSI will continue its collaboration and is pleased to present the II YSI-SIE Pre-Conference, to be held at the University of Urbino on the 23rd of October.

The structure for the pre-conference will feature presentations by young scholars (i.e., Ph.D. students and postdocs) that will be commented on and discussed by their peers and experts in the field. After the pre-conference, participants are required to attend the main conference, where they will have the chance to engage with the discussions held in the conference sessions.

This year’s pre-conference will focus on technology, international trade, and industrial policy. We invite all young scholars to submit their abstract proposals to be part of the pre-conference on the following topics (but not limited to):

– Technology, AI, labor markets and digital platforms

– FDI, Global Value Chains, and international technology transmission

– International trade and unequal south-north trade

– Industrial policy

Selected participants will have the chance to receive a travel stipend that aims to cover part of the travel expenses to Urbino. While the stipend will cover travel within the EU, we reserve two slots for participants from the Global South to cover part of the travel expenses from outside the EU. Furthermore, participants will receive accommodation for both the pre-conference and the main conference (from the 22nd to the 26th of October).
