Research seminar series

Through the course of each academic year the Department of Economics hosts a series of research seminars. They prove to be an excellent way for our staff and research students both to share their work and to sustain connections with the wider community of economists.

The seminars are mainly aimed at staff and students at the University of Sheffield.

However, if you are interested in attending the seminars and are from outside of the University of Sheffield then please contact us with details of the seminar you would like to attend.

External seminar series 2019-2020

At our external seminars, visiting economists from other organisations present their work and lead a discussion.

The venue for the external seminars will be confirmed shortly.
