European Partnership Development Visit with the University of Warsaw

Thursday 16-Friday 17 May 2024
Jubilee Building

We recently hosted a significant European Partnership Development visit with representatives of the University of Warsaw's Faculty of Economics. The visit included two workshops focused on research and teaching, aimed at establishing further exchange opportunities for faculty and students. They explored common research agendas in international trade, political economy, health, and development economics. This visit served to reinvigorate their longstanding collaborative relationship, particularly in trade and political economy.

We hold Economics research in progress seminars and regular events.
