Neat seminars

Neat seminars
 North-Eastern Applied Theory

What is NEAT?

The NEAT (North-Eastern Applied Theory) Seminars invite scholars working in economic theory, or with an interest in theory-driven applications and experiments.
They are organised by faculty members based in Padua and Venice. The monthly meetings rotate between Padua and Venice. Each meeting usually gathers two 1h-seminars in the same afternoon.

Notice that due to covid restrictions limiting traveling, the upcoming seminars are held via the zoom platform rather than in presence. We also switched the format to a more standard single talk of 60 min.

Any scholar (including post-docs and doctoral students) is welcome to attend. If you wish to contact us or show your interest you can reach us at
