for the public understanding of economics and entrepreneurship

Economics Thought Leaders Symposium

DATES: Closed deadline, details on our 2023 programme coming soon

The ETLS is an annual three-day residential symposium bringing together some of the brightest young minds. Senior undergraduates and postgraduates are invited to apply and, for those offered a place, it is entirely free to attend – there is no charge for accommodation, food or materials.

The ETLS is jointly hosted by The Vinson Centre for the Public Understanding of Economics and Entrepreneurship at the University of Buckingham and the Institute of Economic Affairs. It will take place at the University of Buckingham in September 2022. Further details will be announced in due course.

Participants are given the opportunity to hear from some of the top classical liberal academics in the UK and to discuss new frontiers in education, trade policy, money, and technology. There will also be an in-depth discussion on the history of economic thought and well as the opportunity to meet like-minded students. Participants will be studying or will have recently economics, politics or other social science disciplines. There are just 16 places available on this exclusive programme.
