This session offers a mentoring and training workshop for ERC grant preparation. The session will start with a panel discussion on the ins and outs of ERC grant preparation, with the viewpoints of the ERC as well as recent successful ERC applicants. This will be followed by a hands-on session where potential applicants have the opportunity to discuss their application and strategy with recent ERC recipients, individually or in small groups.

This year's panel will consist of:

Libertad Gonzalez (Universitat Pompeu Fabra and Barcelona GSE)
Rachel Griffith (University of Manchester and Institute for Fiscal Studies), Panel Chair

Panellists: Andre Sapir, Abdul G. Noury, Massimo Morelli, Ruben Durante




The ES will be holding the Griliches lectures.

Speaker : Robert Shimer (University of Chicago)

Title: Theory and Measurement in the Labor Market

Topic: We have seen an enormous increase in available labor market data in recent years, which in turn has encouraged the belief that we can understand the world by looking at data in a nonstructural or a theoretical way. These lectures will discuss recent research that critically assesses that view. Any approach to summarizing large datasets must make some assumption about which data moments are most informative. Assumptions that are convenient, such as linearity or additive separability, may be inconsistent with standard economic theory and may give misleading results if the standard theory is correct. These lectures will illustrate this with both microeconomic and macroeconomic applications, examining questions like the sorting of workers and firms, the determinants of unemployment duration, and shifts in the matching function over time.
