About Us

Our Mission

The Glasgow Brown Bag Seminars in Microeconomics are a platform for early-career microeconomic researchers to present their work. The club’s mission is three-fold. First, the aim is for the presenters to improve already existing ideas by rehearsing their presentation and gathering feedback on them. Second, as the participants’ research may vary in methodology and topic, the seminars provide a chance to widen horizons. Third, the meetings shall connect the participants. Gaining in-depth knowledge about each other’s interests is hoped to foster exchange which may optimally lead to future collaborations.

What we do

The club organises meetings every four weeks where two speakers have the chance to present their work. Those events are meant to be accessible for both the presenters as well as the audience. We are happy to host researchers discussing research at all stages of maturity. Likewise, the informal atmosphere encourages an interactive experience through lively debates. All meetings are open and free for to join for everyone.
