Summer School in Urban Economics
The UEA Summer School is designed for PhD students with an interest in urban economics including inter alia housing, real estate, transportation, local public good provision, the spatial distribution of activities, economic geography, and urban or regional policy. The objective of the summer school is to offer an intensive training program for interested PhD students. The summer school will provide an opportunity for students to learn about the research frontier in urban economics, discuss their own research with leading researchers in the field in a relaxed and open atmosphere and meet some of the future stars in the field.

We invite applications from PhD students who are in their second year or beyond of their studies. Places in the school are limited by space constraints. Participants are expected to attend all three days in full.
