Barcelona Replication Games
The Institute for Replication is bringing the Replication Games to EEA-ESEM Barcelona! This 1-day replication challenge, organised jointly with the EEA and ES, will take place on August 27th, the day before the scientific sessions of EEA-ESEM start. We are looking for professors, post-docs, and PhD students interested in a 1-day replication challenge. Participants will be granted co-authorship on a meta-paper combining the replications. Participants will be matched based on field, and a study from a leading economics journal will be assigned to each team based on interests. More information about replication games is available here.
Spaces are limited (up to 70 places) and registration to attend will open when the final programme of EEA-ESEM is released (so around June 20).

(Early) Career Challenges for Women in Academia: Experiences across Europe
Speakers: Cecilia Garcia-Panalosa, Carlo Rasmus Schwarz & Natalia Zinovyeva

Join us for an insightful panel discussion exploring the challenges and opportunities faced by women in academia at various career stages, from PhD to postdoc, assistant professor, and tenure. Our three speakers will share their experiences across Europe, addressing critical questions, including: What are the primary steps and determinants of promotion? How can our discipline foster greater diversity across different career stages? What are some notable differences among European countries, and what lessons can we glean from these distinctions? Don't miss this engaging conversation as we uncover the complexities of career progression and strive towards a more inclusive and diverse academic landscape.
The panel, organised by the EEA's Women in Economics (WinE) Committee, is open to all interested in gender economics, and will be followed by networking drinks.

EEA Session organised by ECB : Aggregate and Distributional Effects of High and Volatile Inflation
Chair: Ricardo Reis (London School of Economics)
Speakers: Pablo Hernández de Cos (Governor of the Banco de España), Anna Breman (First Deputy Governor of the Riksbank) and Lucrezia Reichlin (London Business School)

In the last few years, inflation has picked up substantially in many economies. Following years where inflation was below target, policy makers suddenly had to react to inflation exceeding target substantially, and rising rapidly. This has led to many challenges, including a better understanding of the sources of inflation, the aggregate and distributional implications, the effects on inflation expectations as well as the repercussions of rapidly rising interest rates on, inter alia, financial stability. This session, which is organised by the European Central Bank (ECB), will discuss these challenges.

Education Committee Workshop - CORE
The EEA Education Committee is delighted to host our annual workshop at the 2023 Congress on the topic: How to strengthen the bridge between economics research and economics teaching.

The workshop, from 09:30 - 10:30, will involve three panel speakers providing their thoughts on the following questions:
i.      How have I incorporated my research into my teaching and what impact has it had on student engagement and learning? (Academic)
ii.      How has my teaching influenced my research? (Academic)
iii.      How has engaging with student-led research in my degree, and in Department supported extra-curricular activities, helped my learning of and interest in economics? (Student)
After the panellists have shared their thoughts, we will have an open discussion on what we can do as researchers and educators to improve the connection between research and teaching, helping to inspire the next generation of researcher and to make learning, and teaching, for all more engaging and relevant to current issues.

After a coffee break, participants will reconvene for part II on CORE ECON (details will follow shortly)
