Royal Economic Society Annual Public Lecture (University of Manchester) - 30/11/2016
Wednesday, 30 November 2016 from 17:30 to 20:00 (GMT)
Royal Economic Society – 2016 Annual Public Lecture – hosted by The University of Manchester
'In Search of the Perfect Match – the economics of picking our partners and jobs' - Professor Philipp Kircher (The University of Edinburgh)
The University of Manchester is very proud to be hosting one of the country’s most inspiring economists to give the Royal Economic Society’s Annual Public Lecture. Prof. Philipp Kircher will be giving a lecture this Autumn on the process of matching. Economists have long acknowledged that it takes time to find the right partner. But how can we think about this process? For example, how do employers and employees find each other? Do firms randomly meet workers? Or do they compete for workers? And, what is the difference?
The RES Annual Public Lecture’s purpose is to demonstrate to students at Sixth Form Colleges and Schools that the subject of economics is as exciting as ever. In fact new developments like matching markets, the topic that Prof. Kircher will talk on, will deliver new insights, making it relevant to both your AS/A level Economics students, but also to those students specialising in other areas such as Mathematics.
So, if you are interested in bringing a group of your students to The University of Manchester for this lecture we want to hear from you. Furthermore, as we anticipate this to be a very popular event in the North West, we are giving your School/College the opportunity to reserve up to 15 seats at this early stage (the public launch of the event will be in September).
Date/time: Wednesday 30th November 2016. Doors will be open from 5.30pm. The lecture will take place from 6.00-7.00pm
