2ND EAYE WORKSHOP - SOCIAL NETWORKS
The EAYE and the Paris School of Economics (PSE) co-organized the 2nd thematic EAYE Workshop at the PSE in Paris on October 3-4, 2019.
Social and economic ties play a major role in our lives. They are crucial in shaping and explaining for example technology adoption, peer effects, co-authorships, smoking behavior, obesity, school performance, information diffusion, migration etc. In recent years, interest in social and economic networks has exploded and it is opening up new avenues for theoretical and applied economic research. We invited young researchers working on networks related topics (theory, experiments and empirics) to apply to this workshop. The keynote lectures were given by Sanjeev Goyal (University of Cambridge) and Emily Breza (Harvard University).

1ST EAYE WORKSHOP - HOUSING AND MACROECONOMICS
The EAYE organized, in collaboration with the Leipzig University, the 1st thematic EAYE Workshop at the Leipzig University on September 10-11, 2018.
Since the Great Recession, research on housing and macroeconomics has become a highly relevant and vibrant research field within macroeconomics. What drives house-price fluctuations? How do pronounced fluctuations in house prices and housing credit affect the real economy? What explains the long run dynamics of house prices? What are the macroeconomic consequences of regulations in the housing market and in housing finance? The aim of the workshop is to bring together young economists, as well as a few distinguished senior researchers, that work on these pressing questions and on housing and macroeconomics in general. The keynote lectures were given by Alberto Martín (ECB, CREI, Barcelona GSE) and Moritz Kuhn (University of Bonn, CEPR, IZA).
