    October 17, 2019
    09:30 - 18:30

On October 17, 2019, the 2nd Dutch Network Economics Day takes place at Tinbergen Institute.

Network Economics is a prominent new research approach towards economic research. Rather than treating markets as anonymous, this approach takes into account who interacts with whom in markets and organizations, leading to new insights on the emergence of economic crises, market inefficiencies and inequality.

Also, in The Netherlands more and more economists have been applying the network approach in their research. For the second time, we bring together Dutch network economists, and give them the opportunity to get acquainted with each other and each other’s work.

Attendance is free, but registration is required as the number of seats is limited. If you would like to attend, please register here.
