This INFER workshop provides an opportunity for everybody interested in heterodox economics to exchange ideas, to create links in research and to meet fellows in related subject. It is an excellent opportunity to bring together researchers and practitioners alike who are interested in theoretical aspects as well as in practical issues. Researchers, especially young researchers, are invited to submit theoretical and applied papers across all areas of heterodox economics.


The INFER workshops are open to anybody involved in economics, including both young and experienced researchers, post-doctoral students, and professionals from business, government and non-governmental institutions. As the workshops intend to strengthen the exchange between practical experiences and research outcomes, participation is welcome also without paper contribution.
