The J.E. Cairnes School of Business and Economics at NUI Galway is delighted to host the 11th Irish Society of New Economists Conference on 4-5 September, 2014. The Irish Society for New Economists was formed to encourage research, information and social links among new economists in Ireland and Europe.
The conference will feature more than 74 economists presenting their research from 33 universities and research organisations throughout Ireland, the UK, continental Europe and the United States. Topics covered will range from banking, financial markets, and economic growth to health economics, education, employment, crime and energy and marine economics. Research findings will be of considerable importance to assist in addressing public policy issues such as enhancing future regional growth, inequality, unemployment, energy systems and obesity related policy issues.
The conference will be opened by Professor Alan Ahearne, Head of Economics at NUI Galway. “We are delighted to host the 11th Irish Society of New Economists Conference in Galway this year and look forward to hearing about the exciting research results of so many outstanding new economists from all around the world.”
