The UEA Summer School is designed for PhD students with an interest in urban economics including inter alia housing, real estate, transportation, local public good provision, the spatial distribution of activities, economic geography, and urban or regional policy. The objective of the summer school is to offer an intensive training program for interested PhD students. The summer school will provide an opportunity for students to learn about the research frontier in urban economics, discuss their own research with leading researchers in the field in a relaxed and open atmosphere and meet some of the future stars in the field.

The summer school will run for three days. On each day of the summer school there will be two lectures. In addition several students will have an opportunity to present their current research.
We invite applications from PhD students who are in their second year or beyond of their studies. Places in the school are limited by space constraints. Participants are expected to attend all three days in full.
Email your CV and a one-page description of the topic of your PhD as one pdf file to email@example.com with “UEA Summer School 2020, Your Name” in the subject line. Ask one of your faculty advisors to send a short note to the same email address with the same subject line endorsing your application to attend and noting how it relates to your research interests and dissertation plans. If you wish to present a paper at the summer school (this is not a requirement to apply), include the paper in the same PDF file as your CV and the one page description of the topic of your PhD. We consider only papers which are single-authored or co-authored with other PhD students. Abstracts and extended abstracts are not considered.
