Economics seminars and workshops

We run a regular programme of seminars for staff, students and the wider public.

Our seminars (mostly external speakers) usually take place on Wednesdays between 15:30 and 17:00. In addition, there are also workshops (mostly internal speakers), which take place on Fridays between 13:00 and 14:30.

The seminars and workshops can be either face-to-face, online or a mix of the two. If face-to-face, the venue will be in the Aberconway Building (Column Drive, CF10 3EU). Rooms can be different from time to time, so please check the details below.

Please contact the economic seminar organiser, Dr Peng Zhou, if you are interested in attending these events or require additional information.
