Contributions

In general, doctoral students are offered a presentation slot of about 50 minutes (20-30 min presentation, and general discussion) or a shorter slot, e.g. for presenting a research idea, of about 25 minutes (short presentation and discussion). However, doctoral students may suggest an alternative format that better fits their needs. The seminar is particularly designed for doctoral students and researchers in economics and social sciences of the University of Fribourg. PhD students and researchers from other Swiss and international universities are also welcome to present their work. Participants can present their dissertation project or a paper (at any stage of work). Presentations can be held in English, French or German. Presentation slides should always be in English.
