The Workshop is intended to give young economists a chance to meet and discuss their work on Social Economy, and to stimulate interaction with peers and tenured scholars.

The workshop will be hosted by the University of Bologna, Forlì Campus, and features a friendly atmosphere, which allows for discussing high quality research in a convivial environment. Regular sessions will be introduced by two opening lectures held by our keynote speakers: David Ulph (University of St Andrews) and Sigrid Suetens (Tilburg University).

The organization will sponsor the social dinner for the participants and accommodation for the speakers. No fee is required, but all participants are warmly requested to attend all sessions. At the end of the workshop, the most innovative paper will be awarded the 2014 Young Economists’ Workshop on Social Economy Award.
