QED: Network of distinguished schools of economics from across Europe
The QED is a networking program that organizes jamborees – work in progress workshops that gather participants from all partner institutions – as an integral part of the training.
Every year PhD candidates and Faculty members represented at these jamborees present and discuss their work and also contribute with comments and input in the various discussions.
PhD candidates can contact their local QED coordinators if they are interested in an exchange term or short stay visits at one of the QED-partner universities.
The next conference takes place in spring 2020 and will be hosted by the University of Vienna.
