FIW Research Conference 2022


14th FIW-Research Conference

International Economics


We would like to invite you to this year's FIW Research Conference.

The 14th FIW Research Conference will be held as an online event from 24-25 Feb 2022. The highlight of the program will be the keynote speech by Natalie Chen (University of Warwick) and the subsequent panel discussion "Implications of Global Value Chain Disruptions for European Import- and Consumer-Prices" with representatives of Austrian companies and responsible persons of the Austrian economic policy.

The main objective of this conference is to provide a platform for economists to present recent research results in the field of "International Economics" and to discuss them with both young researchers and experienced senior researchers. Papers from PhD students, young faculty members, and young researchers in similar positions are especially welcome, as FIW aims to support and encourage young economists. This year, a total of 54 recent research papers from the International Economics research area will be presented.
