I co-organize the Regional and Urban Economics Seminar (RUES) with Laurent Gobillon.

The goal of this quarterly workshop is to give regional and urban economists from different backgrounds and countries the opportunity to interact with each other and exchange ideas.

The RUES consists in an optional lunch followed by two keynote lectures and a junior presentation, all three with discussions, and a social dinner (for presenters, discussants and organizers only).

The RUES has an international coverage since at least one of the two keynote speakers comes from a foreign university (among past seminars, research guests have come from LSE, University of Oxford, VU University Amsterdam, University of Berkeley, UQAM, University of Barcelona, CEMFI-Madrid, Syracuse University, Queen Mary University London, Columbia University, World Bank, George Washington University, Duke University, Brown University, University of Geneva, Stockholm University, University of Lausanne, University of Toronto, Erasmus University Rotterdam, University of Warwick, Dartmouth College...).
