Paris Sorbonne Sustainable Development Seminar
The "Paris Sorbonne Sustainable Development Seminar" seminar (PSSD) is funded by the Faculty of Economics of Paris 1 Pantheon Sorbonne University and organized by the research axis “Economics of Sustainable Development” of the Centre d’Economie de la Sorbonne. The seminar takes place monthly on Thursday, 11 am at MSE (Maison des Sciences Economiques, 106, boulevard de l’Hôpital, 75013 Paris, 6th floor room). The seminar invites French and foreign scholars to present their ongoing research in development, population, health and environment. The seminar is organized by Rémi Bazillier (email@example.com) and Josselin Thuilliez (Josselin.Thuilliez@univ-paris1.fr) with the administrative help of Max Bruening.
In addition, the research group “Economics of Sustainable Development” is organizing occasional Ph-D seminars. It constitutes an important arena for the exchange of ideas between PhD students and professors. It is open to PhD students willing to submit their work in progress to the critical examination of the research group "Economics of Sustainable Development". PhD students eager to present their research should contact Rémi Bazillier (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Josselin Thuilliez (Josselin.Thuilliez@univ-paris1.fr).
