The annual CESifo Venice Summer Institute brings together international economists working on economic policy topics for workshops, panel meetings and discussion. The conference venue is Venice International University on San Servolo, a tiny island across the water from San Marco in the bay of Venice, that offers an ideal setting for an intensive exchange of ideas in a relaxed atmosphere. Join us in our silver jubilee year at the Venice Summer Institute, which will be held from 24 – 29 June 2024.   

Online submissions only will be accepted.  Just click on the submissions link for the workshop of your choice below, or do it through our website. Should you have any (technical) difficulties please contact office@cesifo.de for assistance.
 


The following six workshops are scheduled:


Unleashing Potential: Skill Shortages and Re-skilling the Workforce 
24 – 25 June 2024

This workshop will explore the nuanced landscape of reskilling initiatives amidst the digital transformation of economies. We are interested in the varied approaches firms adopt as well as in aspects like the actual demand for reskilling, optimal deployment strategies, and mechanisms for enhancing employee participation in this evolving context. 

Scientific Organizers: Raffaella Sadun (HBS) and Monika Schnitzer (LMU Munich)

Weathering the Storm: The New Push for International Tax Reform and its Impacts on Inequality
24 – 25 June 2024

The pandemic, the climate crisis, and Russia's full scale invasion of Ukraine have led to renewed efforts to shore up government finances in order to better cope with these challenges. In a context of ongoing efforts to tighten the international tax network, we discuss how the changing landscape affects the policy response to international tax noncompliance and what a global response of tax policy to the current challenges could look like. Overarching both questions is the theme of increasing inequality, affected by both the current challenges and the corresponding regulatory responses.

Keynote Speakers: Anne Brockmeyer (Institute for Fiscal Studies) and Ron Davies (University College Dublin).
Scientific Organizers:  Annette Alstadsæter (Norwegian University of Life Sciences), Andreas Peichl (ifo Institute and LMU Munich), and Jakob Miethe (LMU)

Globalization and Innovation
26 – 27 June 2024

Global objectives of sustainable growth, inclusive development and climate action are inherently linked to globalization. A key feature of globalization in the 21st century is the rise of global production networks and multinational activity. This trend both creates new challenges and opportunities for firms, and intensifies countries’ interconnectedness and interdependence. This workshop will bring together researchers at the intersection of international trade and innovation to better understand how globalization shapes technological change and progress towards global objectives. 

Keynote Speakers: Matilde Bombardini (University of California, Berkeley) and Andreas Moxnes (University of Oslo)
Scientific Organizers: Anna Gumpert (University of Tübingen), Kalina Manova (UCL) and Claudia Steinwender (LMU Munich)

The Economics of Social Media
26 – 27 June 2024

Social media affect democracy and society in many ways. We aim to develop a better understanding of the benefits and downsides of social media usage. Based on that, we explore potential ways to make social media more beneficial for society. We also view social media as a rich data source to examine human behavior and interactions.

Scientific Organizers: Annalí Casanueva Artís (ifo Institute), Anna Kerkhof (ifo Institute) and Milena Djourelova (Cornell University)

Funding Education: New Insights on Impacts, Contexts and Challenges
28 – 29 June 2024

Social scientists have long debated whether adjusting school resources – by increasing them across the board, changing the way they are distributed across schools and students, or raising the effectiveness of their usage – can improve educational quality and close gaps in both inputs and outcomes. This workshop will bring together researchers who work on understanding not only whether increased resources can improve education, but also under which circumstances increases in spending are most beneficial and what investments yield the largest returns.

Keynote Speakers: Susan Dynarski (Harvard University) and Peter Bergman (University of Texas at Austin)
Scientific Organizers: Barbara Biasi (Yale School of Management) and Katharina Werner (ifo Institute)

Expectation Formation
28 – 29 June 2024

Expectations play a crucial role for economic decision-making under uncertainty. We bring together researchers from empirical and quantitative theory perspectives to enhance our understanding of how individuals form expectations and how those expectations influence economic decisions and policies.

Keynote Speakers: Laura Veldkamp (Columbia University) and Johannes Stroebel (New York University)  
Scientific Organizers: Theresa Kuchler (New York University) and Mirko Wiederholt (LMU Munich)
