Event: European Association for Evolutionary Political Economy

The European Association for Evolutionary Political Economy (EAEPE) is being held at the Business School from November 3 to 5.

Organised by Dr Andrea Bernardi and Dr Olga Kuznetsova, from the Department of Management, the  28th annual conference will focus on industrialisation, socio-economic transformation and institutions.

The conference will celebrate the legacy of Manchester’s status as the cradle of the Industrial Revolution that determined the modern path to wealth creation based on the use of machines and the introduction of the factory system.

Building upon the lively discussions at the previous events in Cracow (2012), Paris (2013), Cyprus (2014), Genova (2015), we continue with this tradition in Manchester.

The pre-conference public lecture will be given by Professor Doyne Farmer (Geoffrey Manton Building, LT4) on November 01 (Tuesday) at 17:00-18:30, followed by a social welcome event.

An exciting session with Lord Peter Mandelson, Chancellor of Manchester Met, on Becoming Economist in the Age of Populism will take place on November 02 at 16:00-17:00 (Business School, G33).

The workshops will be held the whole day on November 02 (Wednesday) and in the morning on November 03 (Thursday). The main conference starts in the afternoon of November 03.
