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).

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".
