Universitat Rovira i Virgili

The Research Centre on Industrial and Public Economics (CREIP), created in 2010, is a center located at the Economics Department of Universitat Rovira i Virgili. CREIP focuses on two areas of economic analysis: Industrial Organization and Public Economics, and has a team of over thirty researchers.

CREIP will host the 6th PhD-Student Workshop on Industrial and Public Economics (WIPE) in Reus (Tarragona, Spain) on 27-28 February 2018. WIPE aims to be an academic meeting for PhD students to interact with other young scholars, postdoc, and senior researchers to exchange experiences, research ideas, ongoing projects, and future research activities in the fields of Industrial Organization and Public Economics.

WIPE will include about 18 presentations, each of them being discussed by a member of CREIP.

It will also host a keynote lecture by Alessandro Gavazza (London School of Economics and Editor of The Journal of Industrial Economics). Former keynote speakers at WIPE have been: Luis Cabral (NYU), José Luis Moraga-Gonzalez (VU Amsterdam), Tommaso Valetti (Imperial College London), Xavier Vives (IESE), and Massimo FIlippini (ETH Zürich).

All presenters must be PhD students. Papers must widely fit in the fields of Industrial Organization and Public Economics. There is a non-refundable fee of EUR 30 and attendants should cover their own travel expenses.
