Economics Spring Poster Day
Virtual edition: Wednesday, May 12, 2021
The Economics Spring Poster Day is an annual event in the Department of Economics which provides an opportunity for graduate students to showcase their research. All MA and PhD students in Economics are invited to participate with a poster, presenting any completed or ongoing research project, whether it is the MA research paper, one or more chapters of the doctoral dissertation, or any other research project pertaining to Economics.
MA students should feel free to present their research even if their MA research paper is not yet completed, and the poster may be based on a term paper. Similarly, PhD students are encouraged to present a poster on a research project even prior to starting work on the PhD thesis. Posters may present any aspect of the master's or doctoral research in Economics.
The posters will be presented during a virtual event on Wednesday, May 12 from 12 to 3 p.m. Poster presenters are expected to participate in the event by answering questions and interacting with other participants and with the jury from 12 to 2 p.m. An awards ceremony will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. in the presence of Acting Dean Effrosyni Diamantoudi.
