Second edition of the Barcelona GSE Winter Workshops

The second edition of the Barcelona GSE Winter Workshops took place from December 16-18, 2013 at the Institute for Economic Analysis (IAE-CSIC). The Winter Workshops consist of three full-day workshops that bring together researchers from all of the School's academic units to share their work in Applied Economics and Social Policies, Macroeconomics, and Microeconomics.

Each workshop is organized by a duo of Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professors and includes presentations by members of the Barcelona GSE academic community and researchers from other institutions. In addition to the 13 Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professors who presented papers this year, there were presentations by researchers from European University Institute, IESE Business School, London School of Economics, Queen Mary University of London, the United States Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, Universitat de Barcelona, and University of Manchester.

The Winter Workshops are held in mid-December specifically so that faculty and PhD students working around the world who are returning to Barcelona for the holidays can participate. Among the presenters for the Macroeconomics workshop was Daniel Garcia-Macià '11, graduate of the Master in Economics and currently a PhD student at Stanford University. Mr. Garcia-Macià presented his paper, "The Financing of Ideas and the Great Deviation," to an audience that included some of his former professors and classmates from the master program.

The workshops audience included local members of the Barcelona GSE Alumni community as well as doctoral students in the Barcelona GSE’s PhD programs at UPF and UAB.
