EALE 2021 annual conference goes virtual

EALE 2021 CONFERENCE HOSTED ONLINE BY UNIVERSITY OF PADUA

16-18 September 2021

Welcome to the EALE 2021 online conference webpage!

We have been looking forward to organizing the EALE 2021 Conference in Padua, Italy. However, the EALE Executive Committee has decided, after careful consideration, that the EALE 2021 Conference will move fully online. The continuing uncertainty about what the pandemic situation will be in September is making it impossible to plan an in-person event.

We feel that making this decision early on allows us to plan creatively for a vibrant, intellectually rich conference. The Department of Economics and Management "Marco Fanno" of the University of Padova  is excited to be your virtual host for this year’s conference as we work to keep our community connected through these unpreceded times.

The Department of Economics and Management of Padova is one of the youngest Departments in an ancient European university, which dates back to 1222. It offers one of the best Economics and Management degrees in Italy according to Censis, a leading Italian think tank and it is also a Department of Excellence endowed with special funds by the Ministry of Education.
