Research Groups

The School of Economics has a range of active sub-field research groups, where colleagues from the University of Sydney and other universities present regular seminars on everything from early-stage work to polished working papers. These seminars provide a forum to disseminate ideas, get constructive feedback, and germinate new research collaborations.
